A Woman Embroiders on the Sofa and Listens to The Road Home on CKUA
A Large-scale woodblock print made for Alberta Printmakers Freshly Pressed: Steamroller 2023 event.
This large-scale woodblock print celebrates the craft of printmaking and textile arts. It is a contemporary take on historical paintings of women sewing and working on needlework projects. The pictures on the walls and the landscape in the window, in addition to a mix of graphic lines and fine details, highlight the varied styles of woodblock printmaking. The landscape also helps to place the figure in the Alberta prairies, along with bunchberry and yarrow wildflowers, a magpie and Saskatoon berries. This print encourages you to appreciate the simple pleasures in your life, a cozy knit sweater or the woven tea towel you dry your hands on every day.
