Flagmented is a series of works that integrates traditional fabrics from two diverse cultures, the European and the Chinese, blending them to form a single textile. Flagmented represents a possible future able to surpass normal cultural borders and expressions. Classical European embroidery and Toile de Jouy are coupled with traditional Chinese fabrics forming unique pieces that stitch together the two diverse realities. The unexpected results mark a new era of globalisation becoming the flags of a new hybrid culture.
All pieces are unique and made to the dimensions of 90 cm x 190 cm.

Biography and Story
"Thread, fabrics and yarn are my paints. Instead of brushstrokes, I stitch. My stitching is done primarily via sewing machine – an instrument emblematic of the female role. I see strength and power in the stitch and feel its history; it is a way of leaving a print to be remembered, beckoning you to take a second look. The sewing machine is transformed into an artistic tool that I use to create contemporary art."
Sandra’s eye and tactile sense were initially developed through exposure to the fabrics printed by her parents’ company, Alexander Henry Fabrics, Inc. She maintained her involvement in her parents’ efforts while taking art classes at Pomona College, attending USC Law School and during her employment at major corporations and law firms. She has taken art classes at Otis College of Art and Design, UCLA Extension, and Brentwood Art Center.View full product details
I draw inspiration from a range of sources, such as archaeology, artifacts, geology, landscape and plant matter.
My process comprises of an eclectic mix of adding and subtracting: controlling the medium yet allowing the accidental. I work in layers, creating then obscuring , revealing then hiding.
Painting surfaces are constantly multi-layered and renewed. This process-orientated method of constant re- defining allows a subject’s essence to reveal itself in its own time.
