Color and movement are predominant elements of this piece. Translucent materials along with hand dyed fabric create shadows and patterns in this fiber sculpture. This work can be hung away from the wall or suspended from the ceiling, hung vertically or horizontally.
A Bit Twisted
A sketchbook and sewing machine are used to sculpt my colorful fabric constructions. Bright colors and movement are predominant elements of the repetitive, open grid-like structures. Light and shadow are allowed in and create new patterns and colors. I believe my chosen profession of Landscape Architecture influences my work. Landscapes themselves are constantly changing and evolving, never static. The work reacts to its environment. Viewers can interact with each sculpture; slight movement causes the work to move, changing it ever so slightly. The work is rarely stagnant. By traditional definition these sculptural, fabric constructions can be labeled quilts – layers of fabric held together by stitch. The hand-dyed cotton fabric along with non-traditional quilting materials is used such as wire mesh, grommets, mylar, velcro, metal rods, metal tubing, and wire.More About Artist
