Testament Textiles: Patriarchal Patterns

Testament Textiles: Patriarchal Patterns, 2009 / Edition of 10 / Dobbin Mill papers, archival inkjet printing

Size: 12.5” x 16.5” x 0.5”

A textile pattern book of quotes about women from famous men: Aristotle, Freud, Plato, Einstein, Rousseau, Voltaire, Darwin, and Shakespeare.  As brilliant as they were about the ideas they espoused, few were enlightened about women. Transforming their words into printed patterns on a faux cloth is my solution to the pervasive misogyny.
