The word ‘thread’ is often used to represent continuity, of an idea, a theme, a life. The simple repetitive action of interlocking threads and joining pieces and sections together to create something whole, repeated among generations, handed down and shared, chronicles the continuum of life. These sculptures focus on both our relationship to thread and the larger contemplation of the role of work in culture and the art world and how historically the value of an artist’s work is determined by gender, race and class.
