And now a set of knitted ATCs

Building on the theme of time deficits and artist trading cards being an excellent size to execute quickly, I created this series of knitted ATCs for MacKenzie Art Gallery’s YES! exhibition.

Created during a window in my life when I was at the peak of an escalating level of chronic stress, I’ve always used knitting to combat the symptoms of stress — to mentally and physically calm down. Knitting together is symbolic of gathering oneself, or gathering support from others, as the lines come together as if being pulled into a hug.
