I’m not interested in intricate and complex patterns, only pure forms that reveal the labor of making something that’s unseen or in the background. I’ve always been interested in the quiet labor that is overlooked or that we take for granted. I want to connect to the traditions of women’s labor and how it has always been in the background. The textile, in a way, was always the background of the painting. I don’t want to impress the eye into paying attention through complexities; I want to disappear into the work and allow the textile to be given its rightful place.
