“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.”
Many of Stone's works have four elements or areas that have tension pulling at them and holding them together at the same time.
For her, this tension is an expression of the various pulls and balances that exist in the roles each of us play in our lives - in family and in self.
In Holding It Together, the materials also vary from section to section – two are painted, one is sewn, and one consists of the marks left from painting over thread and then removing the thread – almost a print.
