Contemporary Innovations: Amanda McCavour

Embroidered Spaces
Embroidery installations
Sep 4–Oct 31

Floating Garden at Cornell Museum of Art, Delray Beach, FL. Photo by Matt Sturgess, 4th Ave Photo.

McCavour uses a sewing machine to create thread drawings and installations. Through an exploration of line and its 2–D and 3–D implications, stitch is used to explore various concepts such as connections to home, the fibers of the body, and more formal considerations of thread’s accumulative presence.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Amanda McCavour is a Toronto-based artist interested in thread’s assumed vulnerability, its ability to unravel, and its strength when sewn together. McCavour shows her works, which are created on-site, in galleries throughout her native Canada and internationally.
