a c ol l e c tion of r e c e n t wor ks


The emotional and psychological impact of toys, dolls, children, relationships and the power of play, on me being a woman, wife, mother and bibliophile has always been themes I have explored and am still addressing in my work. Besides using a wide variety of mediums to investigate the above themes I have added the fragility of embroidery on rubber/inner tube to my repertoire. Being fascinated by the term ‘domestic engineer’, I feel that needle, thread and rubber are perfect for exploring this subject. I have always used found objects in my work and rubber/inner tubes are my recent obsession. The act of embroidering allows me some time to become calm, quiet and introspective. The contrast of using a needle on a discarded inner tube I find also appealing, and the masochist in me enjoys the impact this has on my fingers. - Hannalie Taute
