To Love, Unloved. Hand Painted, Machine Embroidered Textile by Jackie Wills 2015
Hand painted words and leaves, enhanced by machine embroidery, applique with trimming plus yarn. Base of work is distressed denim. Border is ecru canvas.
I came across this Japanese proverb in The British Library in London back in the 1980's. At the time words made me cry because at the time I loved a man who did not love me.
Lined and backed. The panel is not a true rectangle, although this is hardly noticeable.
To Hang: Insert a wooden dowel through tabs on top edge of work, not shown on images. The tabs add just over 3cm to the height of the work.
Happy to answer and questions.
