Item 2 is another fairly typical stylistic use of source materials. Through the use of a light-cutting from Die Weiße Ratte, I use wallpaper pattern symmetry and reflection to represent culture, language and identity by reinterpreting my craftwork as if this is that moment in Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper when psychosis began to alter the narrators perspective of her physical surroundings in patriarchal society.
Scanned Fuji Portra Negative. 46 x 70cm (18” x 24”) light cutting out of black craft paper. Frame produced in 2004. Montage produced in 2015.
