Kate Gibson, Homespun, 2012
Screen Print, Digital and Laser Cutting, 42cm (w) x 59.4cm (h). Variable edition of 20: each print is unique.
Homespun is a homage to the dedicated homemakers of the 1950s. It’s a modern-day domestic sticker bombing campaign, where completed chores are rewarded with stickers to be collected like coupons or co-op stamps.
“My inspiration from the archive was drawn from home, lifestyle and craft magazines from the fifties and sixties. In particular, the craft magazines often contained distinctive transfers for needlework, printed on utilitarian substrates; they also contained crochet and knitting patterns, technical illustrations, and domestic product ads that provided a rich source of ideas.”
