Remembering by Mary Pal
My work combines my interest in fabric, stitch, and texture with depictions of the human condition, focusing on the character and wisdom gained over a lifetime. Using only cheesecloth manipulated with glue, stitched to fabric, I share my endless fascination with the textural interaction of fibres and threads, while inviting the viewer to look beyond the surface of the work to the stories within.
