Handwoven Cloth, Canvas & Paint
The hand-woven non-wearable garments as 'costumes' or regalia are sewn onto canvas on stretcher bars, and the background canvas, and sometimes the woven surfaces are painted.  This mix of contemporary acrylic painting is a new approach to woven artworks.

"CLOUD DANCER"

Among the Hopi tribes of our southwest, their many dances include the Cloud Dancer. Women wear a black dress and headdresses made from boards, cut with a stylized cloud shape on the top.

I have enlarged the board headdress to form a backdrop for this dancer. Notice the lightning streaks in the black material, symbolizing the prayers sent for life giving storms and of course, the needed rain.

A twill weaving structure was used, designed by the artist. Materials include cotton, Navaho warp, rayon, and Lurex. This is not an exact copy of the cloud dancer dress, but the original served as an inspiration for the design.
