Trapped- Art installation by Jackie Partridge

“Trapped” is an art installation from 2016 that I completed during my MFA. In this installation I hand dyed and hand embroidered dishcloths and sewed together as a large quilt. I want the quilt to be seen as an aerial view of farmlands.

Above the quilt drapes a large sewn thread installation -made from white thread. The sewn piece is stitched on a dissolvable surface -that dissolves in water. The sewn structure mimics that shape of my hometown as viewed from a map and inside the shape are rows and rows of a basic symbol of a house shape.
