Artist Statement: 

Custodians evolved from the constant chaos that I felt our society had been goingthrough evenbefore the Covid-19 pandemic. The pandemic has only highlighted weaknesses within our society. We all must tread carefully on our strong but fragile Earthas its custodians;we musttread respectfully, maintainingrespect for all the living creatures big and small with whom we share our abode. We mustrespect each other as the Custodians of our planet Earth. Thesilk embroidery inthis piece reflects the fragile balance of our sky, land, and water.My creativeprocesskeepsany wasteto a minimum. For this piece,I have put together similar toned hand-dyed silk scraps from my old projects. Some of the pieces have also been re-dyed. Throughout the making of this piece,various techniquessuch as silk dyeing, machineandhand embroidery,and materials from earlier processeshave been used.

Available for shipment or collection from 25 October 2022.
