The needle-sculpted textile objects made between 2004 and 2011, range from 5 inches to 10 feet tall. The strange presence and familiarity of these ‘beings’, regardless of size, age or beauty, allows viewers to experience their individual capacity for empathy. In collaboration with the Belgian photographer, Bart Michielsen, enlarged portraits expand the impact of these works.
