Bound to a Landscape Recycled lath, found rope, 24 x 24 inches, 2014 As a woman, I have been told that there are many things I should be: soft, delicate, gentle, comforting. However throughout my life I have learned being a woman takes much more; women are just as strong and stable as men. To convey the dichotomy of ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’ I feel within myself, I have created works that show the juxtaposition of soft and strong materials. I crochet pieces including metal and rope to show that while a woman may be soft and comforting, there is a strong and stable structure within her. 118
