“I began combining thread and drawing materials in 2007…[it] served several purposes; practically it sped up my process while visually a game came into play as one viewed the work to decipher which line was drawn with ink or graphite and which one was sewn. This resulted in a conversation between the materials, defining what constitutes a line as well as the category material put an object in – craft or fine art? For me, using the thread is also symbolic. I love how thread is connected to female and domestic historical narrative. Thread can mend and repair, and hold things together. It can also knot and tangle. Sewing into to canvas or linen heightens my awareness of the cloth I paint on and becomes another way to express my ideas about craft and material.”
Full Flush also takes from the ideas of the painting Flush but the focus is solely on the color red.
It is an exploration of the many connotations a color might have. How we relate to color is also cultural, so Stone is sure while she may relate red to blushing, passion, heat, blood, flowers, fruit, anger, someone from another culture may have a very different feeling about red.
