Underlines, through-lines

"This piece does not have a specific orientation. Like a map it can be turned in any cardinal direction. In its making, it was in continual movement. The needle of the sewing machine, as with a compass needle, provided the fixed point around which the piece moved and shifted according to position or perspective.

This under-map of stitched lines forms a basic guide. Stitching through plastic bags draws to the surface, thread colours from beneath. The pointillist combinations of colour are a visual pattern of connections made through the layers of plastic in between."
