Thread on Layered Fabric

TREE, thread on fabric, 9 x 8″, frame: 18 x 16″, 1987

 

 

 

My medium is thread-on-layered-fabric. Using scissors, I draw freely into the color and textured fields of found materials. With machine stitching, I draw, adjoin and define form. Lines of thread become my brushstrokes, both blending and emphasizing contours. My work focuses on the universal issues of age and mortality -and on seeing these transitions as a natural part of life, worthy of reflection.
