This print is based on a patchwork quilt created by Tom Phillips in 1997 and shown in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition of 1997. The quilt was made up from fragments of cards advertising prostitutes that had been left in public phone boxes. The symmetry between ‘women’s work’- meaning prostitution and ‘women’s work’ meaning quilt-making and other such domestic pursuits caught his interest. In Victorian Britain there was is a connection between sowing and prostitution, as both prostitutes and seamstress engaged in each other occupations in order to supplement their incomes.
