Armchair Critic


Armchair Critic artwork: reclaimed textiles mixed with memory.


This piece is from the body of work shown in the Sighting Memory exhibition in 2017.

Human beings long for connection. The ability of cloth to hold traces of direct personal contact make it perfect memory stuff. It can hold traces of body shape, show unique signs of wear by its user, even bear an individual’s DNA.

Fragments of old, worn clothing are combined with other materials to draw attention to the uniqueness and intimacy of human ties and the feelings they spark. Armchair Critic explores these themes in an abstract way, addressing identity and referencing portraiture. The work is an observation of human relationships: deep, body-embedded memories of personal experience.
