“A story sewn in, woven in. Velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress and a vintage apron become . . . . Storytelling creatures for people who are also a little lost, found and forgotten.” Mister Finch

I find tactile joy in vintage textiles and incorporating them into my life gives me a sense of history, of continuation, that my personal story lacks in some degree.  The works of today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Mister Finch, are gifts of life, experience, labor and joy — of mindfulness.  These creatures have a sort of fabricated authenticity, a beautifully crafted reality.
