The hand-made lace recalls the feminist credo that the "personal is political". The lace is not perfect and shows evidence of the hand...the digitally printed paper (targets and text) is mechanically perfect. The combination can be uneasy -- something flawed juxtaposed with something perfect (like Plato's platonic circle). The visual metaphor of a shape, a number, a painted gesture, insinuating itself from beneath, can be both political and personal. Something pushed back, or slightly hidden. The surface may be friendly, but violence or unexpressed emotions exist just below.
