Purge Sampler III

This work was made as a kind of embroidery sampler, using traditional techniques to apply very untraditional embroidery materials. A range of salvaged domestic plastics were repurposed as hand-cut sequins and appliques which were stitched onto a vintage handkerchief in a lively and colourful composition. The intention was to explore how unwanted materials could be diverted to create something useful or desirable. I have been interested in the effects of a culture of disposability, particularly the ubiquitous plastic products which can persist in the environment when disposed of unthoughtfully. This is a sampler for a new material, in our new Anthropocene era.
