About this artwork

In 2013 Anne Wilson executed a series called Dispersions consisting of 26 "textile drawings." These works incorporate square fragments of heirloom damask tablecloth (and two napkins) that have been damaged by use. The artist opened up each damaged area into a perfect circle, bound the edge with colored thread and hair, and extended the added needlework into the surrounding area. The complete group of works was hung with top edges in line, as if hanging from a clothesline.
