GRAFTING PROPRIETY: FROM STITCH TO THE DRAWN LINE. Danica Maier. Black Dog Publishing Limited, London, 2015. 128 pp. with 107 col. ills. 28 x 23 cm. ISBN 9781910433072 In English.
Publisher's description: The book explores how textile methodology can be recreated in drawing, the drawn stitched line and how textile agendas can be addressed without the use of the material. Using a recent textile research residency and solo exhibition titled Stitch and Peacock, at The Collection Museum, Lincoln, as the starting point to focus on a particular thread of Maier's work related to drawing. The publication also looks at other recent works created from an international residency held within the abandoned Spode factory; research projects involving the use of digital embroidery combined with the drawn line; and works using historical, popular surface pattern. The book includes photographs of the archival pieces and new artworks, earlier works as well as essays written by leading experts. It accompanies the Stitch and Peacock exhibition and acts as a resource and documentation for the overall project, in which Maier has taken a rarely seen embroidered Jacobean bedspread as a starting point to create a series of new works which are rooted within the Lincolnshire textile collection, and history of embroidery.
