Mappa definition (Latin): Napkin, or painted cloth.
By using reclaimed fabrics Sia Smyth co-opts the past life of the cloth to imbue her artworks with the patina of time. The intimacy of covering the body with these memory cloths, softly comforts and encloses the user.
These pieces use some of the conventions of traditional patchwork and reconfigure them for contemporary tastes. Sia has experimented with modes of construction to discover this new medium as her expression of creative practice.
