Intentional Stains are an investigation into the ideas of remaking and •
reforming, the deliberate and the accidental, the intimacy and the vulnerability involved in creating art works.
They have been created using painter’s rags, drop sheets and desk covers which have accumulated stains from the studio - thus by- products of a creative process, normally thrown away, become a work in their own right. The process of staining, then emphasising the stains using embroidery techniques, was repeated multiple times, keeping the work in a state of flux.
