Another Lost Grip (2018)
wool, mixed fiber found gloves, hand embroidered and stitched
56 x 35 in.

This piece began with a discovered stash of worn and damaged gloves, saved for unknown reasons. As I stitched, the work evolved into a familiar story of time and loss. In the time of COVID-19, the idea of our elderly loved ones losing touch with us and with the wider world seems particularly poignant.
