still—moving brings together a series of stitched textiles that chart a period of suspended time and stalled movement.Each embroidered orb floats or drifts within its field, propelled by a rotational energy as if still forming, still finding its place. Viewed close up, variations between the tiny stitches become distinct, imperfect, tender. Trusting in a rhythm set by her materials, she seeks a kind of restless coherence in the form. For Heather Watkins, this process is both meditative and obsessive—it requires and reveals different kinds of attention. Like unwitting filters, these works absorb and transmit time.
