The work in "Altered" is created in collaboration with Indian Rafoogars (darners) and artist Priya Ravish Mehra acting as the liaison and inspiration. Priya Ravish Mehra has been working with Rafoogars in her project “Making the Invisible Visible” for the past ten years. Priya invited me to respond to the idea of creating through Rafoo (darning). I used my work “Landscape Observed” as a starting place, experimenting with the implications of mending and re-creating wholeness that darning carries.
