What have you been up to in lockdown #11 Dell Stewart
Bits and Pieces
I have been sewing together fabric offcuts and scraps with the intention to make some quilts. I have come to the realisation that I have a serious excess after years of keeping treasured offcuts, as well as leftovers from making clothes and art. I started with a couple of flags, but am now working towards a series of quilts. Patchwork has been a nice distraction from homeschooling, I can do little pieces in between lessons, and I have enjoyed an hour at night after storytime, trying to fit together the odd shapes. The images are from a distracting parallel process, working with the trimmings that are too small to sew together. The other project is a garden I planted from neighbourhood cuttings and seed collecting during the first lockdown.
What have you been up to in lockdown is an online collation, a mix tape of sorts, of works, projects, and meanderings by artists whose work Mr Kitly has represented over the years.
Melbourne has been in extended lockdown since March due to corona and is currently under the strictest stay at home laws imposed since the crisis began. We are all staying at home to keep each other safe and reach the other side.
This series is a way to hear about what our Mr Kitly friends and artist community have been up to during lockdown. I miss seeing them all in person and being inspired by what they do. - Bree (Mr Kitly)
