This body of work from my 2019 MFA thesis show from Applied Craft and Design at Oregon College of Art and Craft and Pacific Northwest College of Art. It is called “provisional” . Based on the knitted stitch, I create hand knitted sculptural work cast in cement as well as paintings, both watercolor and oil from the projection of knitted objects. With a subversive approach to knitting, this work speaks of my feminist voice as a woman, a mother and an artist. Through the transformation of materials, the empowerment of women is addressed in the dualities of soft and hard, negative and positive, light and dark.
