Materials: Mirrors, embroidery floss.
Dimensions: 27" H x 60" W x .25" D
Image Statement: This new work is made possible by a Rhode Island State Council on the Arts grant, that has facilitated my partnering with flood impacted women needle-artists in rural Pakistan. It is a celebration of regional and traditional embroidery skills that have been historically employed for story telling. My interpretations, in keeping with my personal aesthetic, are more abstract and emotive than representational.
