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.

 

"SOUTHERN WATERS"

 

Planning originally for a Florida show, I thought of the many shades of blue and turquoise that are found in the southern seas and skies, both in the Pacific and the Caribbean oceans.

Woven on an AVL loom, and on 16 shafts, the threading structure of this costume is called “Shadow Weave”. It is traditionally woven with very fine threads, producing a very small pattern. By using heavier perle cottons, the patterns become more definite. The small, white stone beads of birds also remind me of the tropics and its colorful and varied wildlife.

One wonders about the strange and mysterious forms of life in those deep, turquoise waters. The circular acrylic “skins” contain shells, fish beads, and weird shapes. Nothing like making up your own forms of creatures!
