Pulling Threads: 2013 – ongoing

 

 

 

The starting point for Dare’s current body of work began 2013 in the Czech Republic when she revisited her mother’s homeland. It furthered her interest in how an individual is constructed. Threaded together by gentle strands and crude stitches forming the pattern of conditioning imposed by external and internal influences. Weaving filters to see through, blankets to comfort ourselves, maps to navigate by and nets to save us. Formed by our simple yet almost all-consuming need to survive and our equally strong desire for comfort.  Below are examples of artworks and bodies of work from this investigation (reverse chronological order).
