Jacquard Collage

Transforming FamilyRed Black & BlueImpedementia

At the end of any project there are scraps, I began to collage parts together after I noticed visual relationships between some as they lay juxtaposed on my cutting table. When I do this work I am puzzle solving, I want to cause the eye to move around and make associations between the elements. Sometimes the missing piece is some hand dyed cloth or some embroidery. Photo and drawn images produced via digital Jacquard weavings, bring a narrative quality to the work, entertaining dreams, mythology or sometimes a realization about a story I have been telling myself.
