Portrait of an Artisan> Richard & Son

Patricia Richardson:

"I love the prosaic nature of textiles.
 
They are so familiar: inhabiting our earliest memories and affecting us daily. They beg us to touch. They welcome us.
Have you ever stopped drying the dishes to admire the tea towel? Or are we indifferent due to its practical purpose?
Through the use of threads, fabrics and paint I am attempting to recast these everyday objects, invigorating the ordinary, in order to see them anew."
