y Tragedia


y Tragedia is one part of a two part piece. The other is, Comedia. She represents the largest of the types of cloth dolls that I’ve made while living in Finland. The finished piece pulls together my increasing use of recycled and up-cycled materials, and the techniques and materials that I have a very long history of using. While it looks as though the finished doll could be removed from the piece, it’s firmly stitched to the back panel. There are themes and metaphors all over the place in this one side of this piece. When added to Comedia, there are even more. Some of these themes and metaphors are still in the process of me figuring them out. I do know that upon finishing both sides of this piece, I began to understand more about where my artwork was beginning to take me as an artist.

This is a completely handmade original piece of artwork created by the seller, using patterns and designs of her own creation. Materials used in the creation of this art doll include: acrylic felt, polyester stuffing, embroidery floss, perle cotton, cotton crochet thread, sewing thread, PVA glue, buttons, air dry clay, corrugated cardboard, newspaper, and recycled fabrics. The clothing is not removable and is sewn onto the doll. The hair can not be restyled. This is a piece of artwork. And is not intended in any way to be played with as if it were a toy.

There are two hangers on the back of the piece to allow the piece to be hung on a wall.

The drawer at the lower part of the piece is practical. It can be removed and has space to place small items.

To keep colours of felt vibrant, do not place artwork in direct sun for a prolonged period of time. This artwork has been made in a pet-free and smoke-free environment.
