Melbourne artist Louise Saxton has been collecting domestic linens since 1988 and has been extracting and reconstructing the embroidery and lace from the linen for more than a decade to build several major bodies of work, including two and three-dimensional assemblages.

For The Linen Project Louise has created an installation with the support of an 18-month artist in residence program through Caritas Christi at St Vincent’s hospital in Kew. The work acknowledges the intrinsic role of linens in the healing and care of patients in a hospital setting.
