abstract embroidery wall hanging with custom frame
12 (17 framed)
The first of three pieces created together, Community is what I felt when I finished this. The variety of colors and textures and the layers of them all creating a community. Some threads are bolder – some with more spacing between the stitches – and some stitches holding together a group of loose threads, all feel like community to me.
Inner Landscape Topography
23” (28” with frame)
This piece represents our inner landscape of thoughts and experiences. Overall, the piece is reminiscent of a landscape topography and the areas feel like different geographical landscape textures. The 3D tulle fabric reminds me of clouds and how our thoughts can be like clouds temporarily obscuring our clarity. There is a section that reminds me of the wing of a bird bringing to mind our ability to soar above our thoughts and look at them all together in the composition we are creating. And just as I was able to create this piece stitch by stitch, we are able to choose our thoughts – each one on purpose – building our life.
