Stitching

This recent work was inspired by Maggie’s continuing research into the overlooked and undervalued in our everyday lives; those ordinary things that have such familiarity as to have become almost invisible. Stitching, that ancient and fundamental constructional method contains the contradictions of both fragility and strength. Using the repeated rhythmic actions of both the sewing machine and a circular stitching motion, in combination with the central geometric building blocks of construction, those frequently unseen elements of everyday construction become three dimensional forms made from thread and time.
