Gaze Upon My Countenance
Collecting discarded materials I assemble them into two dimensional and sculptural forms, primarily reusing plastic bags as a choice to act in support of the environment. I employ traditional fiber-work methods to construct the bags into oddly scaled representations of utilitarian textile objects, abstract wall pieces and sculpture. By this means I merge some of my core interests—textile traditions, feminist art forms, color relationships, abstraction, meditative practice, my concern for the environment and social issues. I use this practice to delve into thinking about labor and utility, longevity, and entropy.
