label
Fashions of times past stand preserved, attention turns toward the wearer, long departed, their earthly bodies decayed. In response, Creith considers opposites - preserve, decay, life, death. Into a place of preservation she displays decayed garments and rejoices in scripture, 'The gift of god is eternal life in Christ' (Romans 6:23).

physical_description
Interwoven layers of flesh coloured paper, white net and metalic gauze, stitched and varnished to form high relief structure mounted on cotton covered backboard. Textured surfaces have been manipulated to create the detail and image of a headless and limbless female form. Surface is embellished with web-like, free machine embroidery in straight and zigzag stitch to enhance the graduation of colour. Torn net is used to create a flowing train.
