A Family Thread

Gwen Pratt

A Family Thread is a series of photographs which records and reconstructs selected crafted items made by my family over generations. The work encourages a visual confusion between the 2-dimensional and the 3-dimensional through composition and placement within a dramatic dark backdrop. The work asks the observer to look at the pieces in a different light by changing the perspective of the objects, highlighting their effectiveness and utility within the contemplative nature of a Fine Art framework. The work is also a celebration and elevation of craft, formerly housed within the family setting and ‘properly’ useful, making them instead something to be seen and admired for their visual and aesthetic qualities.
