Brooke Hyrons’ artwork is a considered body of hand-stitched fabrics, embroidered in order to encourage a contemporary and feminist standpoint to embroidered fine arts. All pieces of fabric have been embroidered in a controlled and cohesive tactic, using the ancient quilting technique Pojagi. Through a primary focus of abstract painting, the artist uses muted coloured threads to create intuitive and discreet forms on her portions of fabric. The process of mark making in embroidery is achieved through reaching meditative and non-thinking spaces, in order to achieve these self-determining forms. The Intimate nature of the work encourages viewers to attentively search the work for information and gestures. The work is both poetic and gestural, as the creases in the fabric remain unironed, acting as a criticism of gendered domesticity. In acknowledging historical precedents, Hyrons’ art piece aims to redefine embroidery contemporarily, as a feminist medium, independent to out-dated connotations of craft, and the role of the domestic nineteenth century woman.
