Woven drawings - drawings on paper and mylar cut up and woven together. Some pieces have an added element - brass sewn on.
I create woven dimensional drawings using images of leaves, seedpods, insects and sea creatures. These images are then altered and rebuilt by the weaving process itself. I cut, paint and sew paper, mylar and metal together--- weaving pattern into image, layering color, line and texture. Often a drawing on mylar is cut into strips, woven into a painted paper form, and a brass silhouette is stitched over it. These drawings reflect the natural world's cycle of transformation and yet acknowledge its timeless longevity.
I got a little tool that makes stripes when filled with acrylic paint- it's really fun. The quick physical process of drawing lines with it offsets the more studied process of weaving cut-out patterns - knots and matrix imagery -into one another.
