joyce – Jayne Butler

Notes in stitched textile on rusted barbed wired dyed cloth strips on the travels of joyce who stitched throughout her life. The strips tell of her travels 7,600 miles in an Austin Princess in the early 1950s with 3 children under 4years old from N. Devonshire to Somalia – driving all the way – to meet up with her husband. Constrained by convention, bound by habit (the devils rope), yet loved stitch in all its forms and fascinated by words, words and language. Loved stories and tales, made dresses from old silk parachutes and yet loved new technology.
