Dementia Darnings - artist's pictures show the effects of dementia

Jenni Dutton is an artist living in the West Country, who has undertaken a series of works called The Dementia Darnings. The works take Jenni’s mother, who has dementia, as a subject. The unravelling of threads in the works vividly shows the dissolution of self which occurs during the disease.
