Rosalind Davis

Embroidery has a complex history. A handicraft, it has connotations of femininity, domesticity but also of reparation. Historically, women used embroidery to commemorate death. Images of the deceased, dried flowers and embroidery were combined in a kind of collage. If painting resists the aggressive colonisation

of modernity, could it be that embroidery represents a desire to repair the damage, to ‘make do and mend’?
