Artwork Description

A tribute to a loving grandmother’s once cherished sewing machine, the piece
captures in its quilt-like motif, the powerful emotional bond between the subject
matter and the family it has helped clothe over many generations. The contrast of
the blue and red drapery against the black and white of the sewing machine is
executed well through the utilisation of the embossing and debossing techniques.
The artist skilfully applies the collagraphy method to assemble a poignant piece.
