Old & New

Architecture is fascinating.  Styles of buildings reflect our social and cultural history.  They change, as has my technique for constructing buildings from fabric.   Victoria has been around for almost two centuries.  The buildings in the foreground were built in the late 1800’s. The whimsical fabric versions, composed several years ago, vanished into my stash. During the lockdown last spring, I dug into the back of my cupboard. These became the starting point.  The more recently constructed background buildings were added to the composition.  They are stitched using modern improv piecing techniques.
