Making Do

“There was a land of Cavaliers and Cotton Fields called the Old South.
Here in this pretty world, Gallantry took its last bow. Here was the last ever
to be seen of Knights and their Ladies Fair, of Master and of Slave. Look for
it only in books, for it is no more than a dream remembered.”
(Exert from Gone With the Wind)

I have made a portrait of my home, the American South, in a way that is both romantic and brutally honest. I have recreated a relic from a past rural lifestyle, the feedsack, and transformed it with conceptual textile patterns and compositions. My portrait relies heavily on symbolism, historical fact, and ironic nostalgia.

Jag har gjort ett porträtt av mitt hemland, den Amerikanska Södern, på ett sätt som är både romantiserande och brutalt uppriktigt. Jag har återskapat en relik från en gammal lantlig livstil, the “feedsack”, och andrat det med konceptuella textil-mönster och kompositioner. Mitt portätt grundar sig pa symbolism, historiska fakta och ironisk nostalgi.
