Lizz Aston: Increasing Your Knot Vocabulary, 2010, fibres, free-motion embroidery, polyester thread, Konnyaku, burn-out, 32 x 42"

Increasing Your Knot Vocabulary uses the same methods as Antiquated Notions however this work references macramé patterns. Comprised of a delicate network of paper and thread, each strand works to interconnect a structure of fibres that weaves notions of the contemporary with the traditional. Aston finds a great sense of poeticism in knot-work as being one of the oldest, most basic and sophisticated technologies. She is interested in the knot as a universal language, one that carries residual histories and memory, connecting the past to the present as a living tradition.
