A Single Piece of Cloth
“A Single Piece of Cloth” is a series of collages that I created from observations of the current cultural landscape. The works take form through appropriated google images arranged in textile inspired designs. They are currently printed as garments and as tapestries.
My process begins by choosing objects that I have a personal connection with. The smell of water from a garden hose reminds me of my mother; the garden hose became the first object used in “The Way My Garden Grows.” As I work on the pieces, the meanings change until I arrive at a place that is intimate, but also public.
As a whole, the works speak about gender, race and immigration. These conversations, inspired by current social changes, are printed on fabrics and garments, common objects used during protest.
