Personal Work, 2012

Among other architecture tools in my Grandfather's room, I found an interior template. Re-contexulaing this object, I developed a surface design through stamping natural dye on to raw silk. I then cut, appliqué-ed and hand stitched to create his portrait. This was an exploration of found (man made and natural) objects, my relationship with my grandfather and the spirit of making.
