Interpreting Mending - A Series of Postcards Part 2
It took me a while but I am so glad that I didn't rush through the sewing for the postcards.  I am so pleased with the results. Please read the descriptions of each piece and I hope you can see where the inspiration came from.  Find out more about the process of making them in this post.
These postcards will be on display at Pameran Poskad from 15 - 24 July at ION Art Gallery, ION Orchard, Singapore.

Postcard 4/10  Mending - Painful Memories 2
Price - SG$78
I took inspiration for this from the patches used to repair clothes or quilts. Sometimes the mending only covers the bad and isn't the solution, hence the warped stitching and patches in this piece.

Postcard 5/10 Mending the Mind
Price - SG$88
The mind is so complex that it is difficult to pin point a remedy to alleviate the emotional turmoil a person could be going through. It could run deeper than we think, and no quick fix will be able to pull the person through all the mind's layers and into the light.

Postcard 6/10 Mending Relationships
Price - SG$58   SOLD
The relationships between you and your friends changes over time. Sometimes it's good, but other times it just disintegrates. How do we reestablish these broken connections? May be it takes mending what's on the inside first before offering your friendship again.

Postcard 7/10  Mend Nature or Fix Ourselves

Nature has its own way of resetting itself, so we shouldn't be mending nature but rather changing the way we behave towards it. It could be consuming less or going vegan. Every action counts!
