This work layers past, present and future while investigating the history of art, earth and individual. Painted Canyon, part of the 30 million year old, Californian, San Andreas fault-line, was the inspiration for the rock. Antique lace gets a new life and challenges our perceptions of art, craft and gender. Machine-made objects connect the work to our present era yet appear historical; lace impressions in the rock are repaired with gold leaf, a kintsugi-inspired technique.
