a wrapped package
I created this shadow box after reading about Louise Baldwin in an old (2002) Embroidery magazine. I was freshly inspired when I read about her use of collections and how she considers the idea of 'the curator'. Why do we place things on a mantelpiece. What do the odd things collected in boxes, bowls mean? What do we decide to save, what do we decide to throw away? What kind of story happens by placing images and objects next to each other?
