“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.”
In Side By Side, the colors on each side mirror the colors on the other side.
Stone loves painting on raw canvas and building up layers of paint to obscure the surface weave of the canvas. The piece started in the middle with a strip of exposed canvas and the two sides building up outward from the center.
The artist has been drawn to creating symmetry in her work and the sides mirror each other and together are a whole. The other narrative in the making for her was thinking of a couple, where each has a separate being and purpose and then unite at the same time in relationship.
