Using fabric from worn camouflage uniforms, I create installations about the devastation of war. Camouflage fabric was created by artists to hide the soldier by allowing the soldier’s body to merge with nature. In this body of work, one of my goals is to metaphorically return the camouflage patterns back to nature. I often use intentionally rough craftsmanship to depict the insanity and absurdity of war. In other work, careful obsessive sewing speaks to the fragility and beauty of the human body. At a time when war is becoming highly technological, hand-sewing can re-focus attention on the personal. For me, putting pieces of fabric back together in forms that reflect nature is a symbolic recuperation.
