Susan Hill – Memories – Layers
We all have favorite memories. Rather than pick one, and try to express it in stitch, I decided to go after the way memories work. Memories usually involve layers – one image opens another, and so on. I built this piece as a crazy quilt, deliberately asymmetrical, as memories present themselves. I also experimented with embellishment to suggest the idea of “memories” as complicated parts of our interior lives.
