The Fabric of the City

BY PATTI ISSITT
@ VOL 16 ON JUL 12, 2018

Patti Issitt discusses her art: collages and mixed media composites using print, fabric and stitches. Patti aims to explore the emotional interplay between mother and daughter, the internal city of physical embodiment, and the deeper implications of scar tissue running deep into the soul as well as the body. It’s not uncommon for women to carry deep scarring: abdominal surgeries, caesarian sections, breast surgery for example. 


As the city, especially a city with walls such as York, becomes congested and immobilised by impingements to it’s circulatory system, so is the freedom of our body, both physical and mental, impinged by the scar tissue which we accumulate through our lives.
