The novella The Yellow Wallpaper (1892) provides a framework for images and influences that relate to my practice and Dress 09. Its author Charlotte Perkins Gilman powerfully conveys a claustrophobic world inhabited by a Victorian wife passively imprisoned by her husband. Invited by the Crafts Council to curate this exhibition, I’ve selected seven quotes from it that pertain to connections both literary and artistic, and examples of my own work that have led to the making of Dress 09.Craft Council UK.
