Slideshow of Features Fade

Here is a the piece Features Fade I just hung at artspace, Richmond, VA. It is a hand stitched and strung free-floating embroidery. It is embroidered on a special fabric and then melted over a period of time in this kind of water fountain frame I created. It is my version of a sand mandala. It is about the process of letting go and also, in part, implies the necessity of letting go of notions of a particular beauty as we age. Thank you to D and G Plastics for helping me with all my special needs in the plastic department!

Featuring new work at ArtSpace

The first image is my take on a baby quilt. I have been working with whites and textures. I have been enjoying what I can do with both paint and fabric and the color white. The next images are a piece called Features Fade. This piece is a type of water fountain. The stitched portrait in front dissolves over time as the water drips onto it.
