The form that my mother used to create out of multi-colored rags were essentially dolls and balls. A ball made out of strips of colored cloth is a strange living thing. As one layer of colored material wears out another shining color appears with a life of its own. Both rag ball and rag doll get their life from the same materials and yet the forms are different.
So I collected multi-colored rags and cloth strips, spread them on the floor of the gallery, made some balls and dolls, then put them in transparent boxes, arranged them atop one another in the middle of the space. Hung on the walls were many drawings with a painting in the centre. I called the installation, The Ball of Rags.
