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.

Drawing with Paper

Paper making is an exciting process for me. I like how the pulp floats on the surface in an organic manner. The first picture is abaca pulp with some sewing embedded in the paper. The second picture is abaca pulp mixed with jeans that have been beaten and the third is me installing the work.
