The Ties that Bind II: Textile Triptych

Sonja Andrew (Artist)

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


The Ties That Bind II (2008) textile triptych is based on the experiences of a Quaker conscientious objector in the First World War and the consequences of his beliefs for himself and his family. The narrative sequence [of three panels] aims to visually communicate the family at the start of the war, the objector’s imprisonment, and the postwar hostility towards conscientious objectors’ families. The visual content of the work was constructed within a semiotic framework in order to test the reading of individual signifiers and visual syntagms within the textiles.
