These monotypes on linen and silk pay homage to textiles, domestic and utilitarian objects not always included in the fine art canon. I inserted pins from my mother's sewing box into the cloth and recorded their image in careful, repetitive rows that can be read as a daily log of activity -- a subtle "calendar" of unheroic activity. I also want to place this kind of minimalist, Cartesian composition into a new context. Ultimately, these hand-hemmed cloths center on the movements required to make the marks. The body leans in to baste a straight line. The eye and hand coordinate as pins are inserted along that line. And physical concentration is required to place a button in its proper place. The accumulation of thousands of quiet and unobserved gestures reveals an underlying obsession to be constructive and dutiful.
