Vessels of Surrender

This series of digital drawings utilizes the embroidery machine as a method of drawing/printmaking. It consists of nine separate prints based on 3D rotations of each of the letters in the word “surrender”. These vessels of grid-like wire frames struggle in their function to contain and communicate. The vessels suggest the futility of the human struggle to control and hold on to things. Yet the gold threads glisten with an elusive promise of the release in surrendering.
