Aberystwyth Degree Show 2011


I exhibited an installation piece called ‘Do Not Think’, which involved 183 small pieces of crochet (in silk and cotton), and tiny, hand embroidered text.

Do Not Think is about false hope, words which should remain unsaid, and the sometimes futile attempt of trying to stop ourselves from thinking unwanted thoughts. The process of creating this work was as important as the finished piece; both crochet and embroidery keep the mind occupied.

I have never been so content with a piece of work, both aesthetically and conceptually. It is highly beautiful, yet also vulnerable and sinister. The subversive nature of my art, this juxtaposition of beauty and darkness, has always been important, and is something that I wish to continue exploring.
