Summer Dream

This work is an optical play with colors and screens. Colors change and shift as you move passed the piece. It shimmers and visually vibrates with wavy moiré lines that dance about. (The wavy lines seen in the photographs are purely optical. There is not a wavy line anywhere in the piece.)This wall sculpture is industrial, yet has a light and airy feel. It seems to float in it’s space. The photographs cannot do it justice.

I create unique, multi-dimensional, and airy textile wall-hangings. As a long time oil painter turned textile artist, I think of myself as a painter who weaves. I traded in my oil paints and easel for colorful linen yarns and a large wooden floor loom. Although much of my work is now three-dimensional, 1950’s color field painting and 19th century impressionist painting are still huge inspirations. My larger artworks are studies in optics and color, while my smaller works are abstract designs that come about like stream-of-conscious thought. The resulting work is ethereal, delicately beautiful, and subtly emotive. In the process of making, I always think about screens and the act of seeing through many layers. Seeing the world through fog, looking through long blades of grass, or seeing the sky through the thatched branches of a forest, I find the beauty in these layers.
