Cherry Fight, letterpress printing on hand stitched and naturally dyed fabric, 87cm x 63cm x 17cm, not for sale
These artworks explore the artist’s relationship to their dual English & Italian heritage, especially through the lens of childhood memories and the home. Craft processes such as hand embroidery, natural dyeing and letterpress printing are used to slow the shifting and unstable nature of remembering, and discover how individual memories
can weave together to create new narratives that help shape our identities. These time and labour-intensive processes allow her to learn from and remember the past, whilst benefitting from the therapeutic potential of making.
