This work was a test for a series of work I am doing called 50 Rules for Making Art from 50 Years of Making Art, a series of hand knitted squares which reflect the things I have learned over a life time of making art. The stitching came out a little wonky but I still liked the work, so decided to donate it.
This work was exhibited at Bus Projects as part of the 2023 Fundraiser exhibition.
Just is an American born Australian feminist artist best known for her inventive and political use of knitting.
