Sanctuary is a series of works based on natural history illustrations, constructed from discarded needlework pinned to tulle. Saxton reclaims handcrafted textiles made in and for the home, drawing a parallel between this lost art and the vulnerability of many threatened species. Her work addresses this sense of imminent loss while also re-evaluating the home as a point of reference for and inspiration for contemporary art.
