Breaking the traditional boundaries of craft, Stewart Francis Easton’s work fuses together hand embroidery, sonic art and music, drawing up on and using folk song, story and social history. Most recently, Easton has been exploring the connection between the process of hand embroidery, expansion of awareness and abstract forms into a body of hand-stitched works documenting a daily practice of stitching meditation. For the jackets, Easton has been inspired by military wear which was hand painted by soldiers.
