Janet Morton: wool work Janet Morton

In 2000, Janet Morton installed “wool work”, an exhibition of knitted sculptures:Untitled (Garden Box), Untitled (Domestic Interior) andCasting Off. Morton’s exuberant, hand-worked sculptures speak of time-honoured traditions of making and doing things for people we love. She connects ordinary things to monumental time. The artist’s insistent use of cloth and traditional hand knitting links her work to craft and the creation of collective memories. Yet, her sculpture embraces an eclectic terrain that is as engaged as much with popular culture and personal values as it is with the folkloric homily: As long as you are knitting, you are not wasting your time.
