Linsey Obermeyer’s “Womans Work” collection 1997-2008 is a series of pieces that consist of knitted jumpers. The main theme of the pieces consist around motherhood. The piece “Immigration: Missing You – 2008” features two jumpers one made to fit Obermeyer and the other made to fit her daughter separated by a fence. The piece leaves a feeling of isolation and despair
I liked the use of the softer materials and everyday objects and alters them to convey such heavy topics.
