In my practice I am particularly interested in slowing down time. To this end I have been working with the media of cross-stitch embroidery as the visual platform to try and defy our present day high-speed lifestyle.Cross-stitch embroidery has both quietness to it and a tradition from earlier generations.Furthermore this technique can metaphorically capture andcomment a lot of technology’s newer concepts and the many electronic platforms that are continuously necessary for us to interact with and to understand.
I’m also focused on including other concepts into my work as; time, tradition, history and classic perceptions and include untried media in conjunction with refined embroidery techniques.
