Pearls (Unstitched) - A woman looking into the camera. Her hair is slightly windswept and she is holding a string of pearls. The background is dark like the night.

Pearls (Unstitched)

My wedding dress was the last thing my mother sewed for me. On the 30th anniversary of her death I unstitched the dress, using it as a canvas to stitch the text of my play 'Pearls'. 'Pearls' is the story of my mother, a compassionate and complex woman whose final lesson was to teach me what it truly means to live every day as if it is your last. Creating this show was a time of deep reflection, thinking about grief, family, the power of art, and what it means to live a life true to your values. Accompanied by a catalogue of essays and short video, this is a space for quiet contemplation.

A limited season of my show Pearls will also run in the gallery, see separate entry for booking details.
