Gold for the soul, 2022




The design of this textile is based on archeological remains in the Roman Forum and photographs of its excavation from the Esther B. Van Deman archive at the American Academy in Rome. This collection of glass plate negatives uncharacteristically depicts the labor of people digging out the forum in the late 19th century. This piece is an homage to the people that were not credited in history for their work, both in building and uncovering these well known architectural wonders. Cotton fabric, cotton batting, polyester thread; hand-stitched reverse appliqué, trapunto, quilting, binding around the edge.
