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.

"HIDDEN CANYON DWELLERS:"
"They Who Watch"
Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

 

In the Columbia River Gorge, there is a small rock carving of a stylized face. The local indigenous peoples call it “She Who Watches”. Nothing else is known about this carving. All of the original thoughts and stories about her (?) are lost to the ages.


My pair of figures are also watching, waiting for their time. The rock symbols are copies of actual stone markings from the area.
 

The costumes are woven of cottons, rayons, wools, and acrylics. The beads are actually a form of plastic, that resembles stone, both on their crowns and chests. The painted background uses acrylic paint and molding paste to appear to be the granite stone face of the river cliffs.
