Shape shifting

In January the seeds of new ideas -shapes shifting from dark to light,
and back again,
inner eyes opening.

I am playing with shapes in anticipation of my February class at the Textile Center.

Notan: A Study in Design
Mondays, February 6, 13 and 20, 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Notan is a Japanese concept meaning dark-light, or the interplay of positive and negative space in design. In this workshop, we will explore the dynamics of this principle using black, white and gray paper to work through a series of exercises exploring and applying these ideas. We will discuss the applications of notan in textile design and share and discuss our studies and experiments in class.

I use the materials and techniques of the Japanese art of katazome (paste resist stencil dyeing) to capture my experience of nature. My work celebrates daily meetings with the wild birds, plants, and lake breezes of my local urban surroundings.
