The Contemporary Embroidery of Erin Endicott

                               Erin Endicott - Detail of Healing Sutra #10

Erin's work is powerful, beautiful and very moving. It is embroidered onto antique fabrics stained with walnut ink. She states that she uses "...contemporary embroidery on antique fabric as a canvas to explore the common threads that bind countless generations of women. Wounds - both physical and psychological - are given life using delicate, meditative stitches. Traditionally thought of as "woman's work", sewing is a time consuming and contemplative process, each thoughtfully considered stitch becoming integral to the whole."
