Amanda McCavour draws with thread, exploring the use of the sewn line in both 2-D wall pieces and 3-D installations. Her work explores connections to home, the fibers of the body and more formal considerations of thread's accumulative presence. The artist is interested in thread's assumed vulnerability, its ability to unravel, and its strength when it is sewn together.
Katie Addleman, visual arts reporter for Elle Canada wrote, “Her thread drawings [are] so phenomenally intricate and unique that they inspire the slack-jawed reaction usually reserved for Damien Hirst’s preserved sheep.”
McCavour holds a BFA from York University, Toronto, and an MFA in Fibers & Material Studies from Tyler School of Art.
