Denim Shirt, Digital Stitch, Hand Embroidery, Satin Rose Petals
Shirt is an autobiographical piece inspired by Gill Scott-Heron’s spoken-word piece: Pieces of a Man.
Drawn to the idea of memories acting as patches for our lives that we piece together and hold onto to form our individual identities.
Using my past experiences I have looked at how identity is formed through our relationships, memories and experiences.
Seeing clothing as a second skin to our identities the shirt becomes the body in which embedded are the patches and stitching’s of memories and life’s experiences holding it together.
