Article of the week - number forty-eight - a school report

 Ellie Evans is a textile artist who explores identity through stitch.

This piece is a piece of cotton printed with a fragment from a school report, and hand-stitched with the artist's initials and the phrase "Ellie is a lovely girl" in red thread. According to the artist's website these pieces represent a search for identity through her Polish and Dutch grandparents whe settled in the UK. The cultural confusion caused Ellie to research traditions through which she could explore and express herself in small pieces like this.
