Healing Sutras were born out of Erin Endicott‘s personal examination of inherited psychological wounds (patterns of behaviour and reactions), and how those wounds insinuate themselves into our lives. Endicott “works through” these wounds by making them into visible, visceral objects. Her personal history is externalized in each of the Healing Sutras – every canvas is a vintage fabric passed down from the women in her family. The initial marks are created by staining the fabric with walnut ink, which grows an organic shape once the dye hits the damp fabric, creating a “map” for each piece. The painstakingly slow process of stitching the symbolic marks  – vein/roots, cellular/seed shapes – onto each sutra not only speaks to feminine patience, but has a ceremonial quality to it, which becomes a rite of healing.
