Sewing Table

Jennifer Nicole Murray's avatar Jennifer Nicole Murray

"Sewing Table" is a still life depicting various objects made by women in my family. I use the process of painting to become intimately aquatinted with every detail of the objects. From the careful study of each stitch in my mom's embroideries, to the fine pattern on the dress of one of my Great-Aunt's dolls, I achieve a greater understanding of the object. While these items have sentimental value to me, I hope the viewer is able to feel these objects have importance beyond the superficial. Because of the level of detail painted into each inch of the painting, the viewer is asked to study every stitch and pattern, mimicking my personal study through the painting process.
