Oil on panel
10 1/4" x 14 1/2"
Breaking the traditional boundaries of craft, Stewart Francis Easton’s work fuses together hand embroidery, sonic art and music.
Drawing upon and using folk song, story and social history as a starting point Easton works with the space and weight of story to create large-scale wall based pieces that emphasize the passage of time within a single panel.
Easton emphasizes the need to create using the hand as it is in this process that a connection is made with the story allowing a slowing down and immersion in the moment.
Most recently Easton has been exploring the connection between the process of hand embroidery / expansion of awareness / and abstract forms into a body of hand stitched works documenting a daily practice of stitching meditation.
