Diane Savona | "Janice's Mother was the Neighborhood Shaman" | 'My art is constructed of salvaged linens, found at the local equivalent of archaeological digs - garage sales. Once-common crocheted doilies and embroidered tablecloths are becoming extinct. By presenting them as unearthed fossil specimens, I hope to change viewer perception of our textile heritage.'
Diane Savona, Textile Artist Fossil Garments " As a part of daily life, sewing is a dying skill. Expertise that was passed down, mother to daughter, for hundreds of years is now dying out: types of mending are no longer general knowledge, and most young people don’t own a pin cushion. Hence, my work shows textiles in an archaeological context."
