Handwoven Cloth, Canvas & Paint
The hand-woven non-wearable garments as soft '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.

 

"550 B.C. PERSIAN WARRIOR #3"

 


Persian Warrior # 3 is a large man, but beware, he maybe on the chubby side, but he has the strength of three men in a battle. If you are concerned about your life in a war, go and find # 3; there will be definitely space around him. On the whole, however, he is a most pleasant man with a raw humor that his fellow soldiers find very amusing. Just don’t insult him in any way.

Warrior # 3, and his forefathers, watched the Assyrians rise and fall, then the Medes. Now it is the Persians time under Cyrus the Great and later, Darius. They rebuilt Babylon and their headquarters was in Susa, not a far distance from Babylon. Their blue-green brick buildings were spectacular. The Pergamon Museum in Berlin has replicated these walls and they serve as the inspiration for this series.

Note from the artist: All three Persians and their colorful brick city walls were fun to make. The same weave structure and warp was used, but the weft colors were changed as well as the tie up of the treadles. The movement of the diamond design that changed upon where the observer was standing was a great and unexpected gift. Not all weaving can be planned far ahead. There are always surprises waiting to be found!
