mixed news

Some days ago i got the magic phone call.Magic phone calls happen unexpectedly and they change your life or at least give it a good shake.
The arts and crafts city college where i took some clasess is celebrating their 75th anniversary next February and there will be an exhibit. Students from every department were selected for the exhibit and i was chosen from the weaving department.

I have some newer work that has not been exhibited yet and this is very timely since i will avoid sitting down thinking and producing all under stress. And they are woven pieces. Lately i have been working a lot with digital printing and surface design it being a combination of exploration, lack of time and instant gratification. Compared to weaving everything else is instant gratification. Yet as someone once said weaving is not about color and structure it is actually about time. And i miss weaving.

This piece is silk organza with stamping,drawing with watercolor pencils and stitching.I sense a change in direction from the fall pleasures series, which by the way there are 3 more pieces in different stages of completion.

Let's see where it goes.

    Lovely work. I'm surprised I haven't found you before!

    I feel the same way about weaving (or hand printing/dyeing) and digital printing. I've actually been thinking about it a lot lately. In weaving, the hand of the artist is so vital. I feel like many of my pieces wind up being about reflection, just letting my mind wander while I weave.


interaction appreciated!
