Eileen Braybrook: Catch and Release
Materials: Scrap Wool and Cotton Yarn, Latch Hook Canvas.
Dimensions: 700(w) x 700(l) mm
‘Catch and Release’ was started in March 2019 for the Call of the Hoard group show and only completely finished while in lockdown. Scrap yarn was used to create this atoll shaped portal. Salvage bias binding was used to finish the piece.
I was exploring techniques and shapes that could represent the concept of holding on vs. letting go as a way to process grief and joy.
