White Doily for Nani

Artwork Tags:

This was the first large scale doily piece I made. It honors the anonymous women creating handcrafts. The piece is meditative and stands away from the wall creating varied lighting effects.

STATEMENT

My work is made with cut-outs and acrylic on a variety of sturdy and lightweight surfaces including tyvek paper and polyester film. I am interested in imagery that is complex and that contains repeating variations. The subject matter I have explored has included braids, doilies, eddies, and murmurations, among other repeated forms that are drawn on intricately cut out backgrounds. The cutouts interact with the architectural elements and create optical effects through cast shadows and the interplay of the surfaces. The work creates a luminous, meditative space in which the viewer can wander and find wonder.
