Mam’s Christmas Tablecloth
Various threads and paper on cotton
Dimensions: 53 x 48 cm
Alison Aye makes sewn collage from found papers and fabric, calling attention to ‘throw-away society’ and embracing humour, popular culture and current affairs.
Her methods are slow, not just the hand-stitching, but also the meticulous recording of materials, which forms an integral part of the process. Some pieces take years to complete.
This particular piece is made using the Christmas tablecloth of her childhood. It depicts the passing of time in a minimum wage job she did not enjoy.
The price does not include delivery fee.
