Modern doilies. We love to hate the doily. For decades, it has represented decorative clutter in the home. These works by artist Simon Periton have helped us to see the lacy decorative object in new light, though.

Periton's works are large scale, paper, and are often wall-hung. They are informed by the traditional doily but incorporate modern imagery, material, and technique.
