Amanda McCavour is a Toronto-based artist who works with stitch to create large-scale embroidered installations. She is interested in thread‰۪s assumed vulnerability, its ability to unravel, and its strength when it is sewn together.
McCavour uses a sewing machine to create thread drawings and installations. By sewing into fabric that dissolves in water, she can build up stitched lines on a temporary surface. The crossing threads create strength so that when the fabric is dissolved, the thread drawing can hold together without a base. With only the thread remaining, these images appear as though they would be easily unraveled and seemingly onåÊthe verge of falling apart, despite the works raveled strength.
