Beyond the Flannel #3, 2020

Textile/Flannel Shirts, Acrylic 25.5×25.5cm
“This Series, ” Beyond the Flannel”, investigates the re-contextualisation of masculine associated objects to domesticated materials through the use of flannel shirts…. pieces in this series explore the flannels identity beyond its ‘working mans’ origins by displaying flannel shirts as a material used to furnish objects the shirt is not typically associated with. The process of sewing together large quantities of ‘haphazard’ flannel fabric arrangements exposes the labour intensive aspects and temporal elements of the domestic task of quilt-making. Long hours of sewing also parallel the labour association of the flannel shirts Welsh origins.” ~ Kiwibull Art, 2021
