Historical textiles form the basis of a conversation across time upon which those histories are explored through the capacities of the medium’s own inherent language and symbolism. Currently, textiles in the form of quilts from the Antebellum South act as a source and specific reference point placing the work on its historical continuum which it then attempts to respond to and converse with. 

Fragments of truths rise to the surface through a combined process of research and self observation on the theme of this continuum. These observations of the self are fashioned into visual clues which feed back into the language of the textiles reworking and in so doing, seeks to contextualise and disrupt the comfortable visual consumption and interpretation of the original artefact which historical distance engenders.
