Dad passed away in January 2017. As my sister and I cleaned out his belongings we were inspired to create artwork commemorating his life. I chose to do Young Jack based on a formal portrait taken just before he left Trinidad. His letter was written just after arriving in Vancouver in 1947.
Techniques: Starting from photos, we posterized them to create a guide for the fused fabric collages. This piece is entirely made of our Dad's ties and shirts. It includes stitching, fusing, hand dying and printing on fabric.
