My piece entitled “Remembered Contours” was accepted into this year’s Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts Exhibition, and received an “honorable mention” (pink ribbon). I tinkered and tinkered with the problem of how to hang 2 layers like this, and finally came up with something that works well for me.
I’m experimenting with 2-layered pieces. These are difficult to photograph because the lighting is so critical. I’m not 100% satisfied with the way these are presented; more ideas re: presentation are percolating in my imagination. The piece called “Symmetry” is part of a collaborative project curated by fiber artist Erika Mock. Erika has paired fiber artists and poets to collaborate on the theme of “Venus.” Participants will interpret this theme in many ways — I am contemplating the concept of beauty in nature, which is usually my inspiration and the source of my imagery. I am paired with Duluth poet Tera Freese. She has given me four lovely poems in exchange for Symmetry. (I will post them here along with completed artwork.) This summer each of us will create work in response to each other’s work. The show will be held in Superior, Wisconsin this coming September.
