Self Portrait; Artist’s Brain utilises the intricate, almost surgical process of contemplative embroidery to translate MRI images of my own brain. The technique takes time, it is meditative, methodical and rhythmic; a ‘slow art’ practice. The work is a study of endurance and an exploration of duality; chronicling the passage of time.

 

“a synchronous meeting of metaphysics, art, and science in the artist's life…
the cadent routine, matched the almost surgical discipline of her needlework”

Clare Caldwell, Dreamweaver, The Lancet Neurology, June 2018
