make believe!

"in search of make believe" is a triptych dedicated to a companion of many years ago, a doll that is still very present in the little girl's memories, dreams, attempts of planning a grown-up future and all sorts of make believe games...
The little girl that played with this doll is now a grown up woman; she has lived in several places around the world with this doll always in close proximity! The doll has witnessed magical times and some of the dreams becoming reality; meanwhile time for make believe games has become less and less necessary...
So here is this tribute to a special friend; the hinged panels open and close, reminiscent of the rituals of putting out the toys to play and back to their place for a rest or a good night's sleep!

The three panels are hinged together with a hidden coptic stitch.
Monoprints done especially for this project are mounted on tubular segments.

Patience and love for the craft in putting it together!
