Weaving Layers, 2012, twine, fabric, wood, 144” x 48” x 8”.

            The hand-woven twine is one continuous piece where the front hangs from a dowel and folds inches from the floor with the back attached to the wall. 

Untitled, 2012, yarn, plaskolite, wood, and spray-paint, 61” x16” x 4.5”.
Untitled is a whimsical sculpture.  The holes evoke eyes of a mask and beckon the viewer to peer through the holes.

See Through, 2012, thread, wood, 66” x 43” x 8”.

The black hand-woven thread weaving hangs over a handmade frame-like structure.  Viewers are meant to walk around the structure and see the surrounding space through the weaving.

Corner Home, 2012, cord, wood, and gel medium, 84” x 47” x 3.5”.

A weaving wraps around the two by four and the threads appear to come out of the ends of board.  A larger weaving also appears to emanate from the beam and floats three and a half feet from the ground.

By Hand, 2012, bleached twine, and wood, 40” x 22” x 3”.

The woven piece was bleached and washed to produce the wrinkled and shrunken shape.  The process refers to multiple steps of labor that is currently done by machines, such as sewing ones clothes and washing them by hand.

Familial Works

I found this photo in my family album.  The room pictured is the inspiration for the work on the right, Family Room (2012).

   The shapes of the fabric reference the door and cabinet from that same room. A floral patterned sheet represents the door, which I found in my grandmothers sewing kit, which appears to be from the sixty’s.  A thick black right-angled trapezium shaped cloth that is a geometric simplification of a bed or room floor is sewn onto the floral shape.  Between the two pieces of fabric, the door and the cabinet, is a hand-made mustard colored weaving that has an unfinished appearance, with untethered armatures sticking out from its sides.  This weaving refers to the relationships and figures in my family.  Six lengthwise elements of the weave, called the warp, represent the six people in my immediate family, which are called ends.  Crosswise element of the weave is called the filling.  Each single strand of the filing is called a pick. The picks in the mustard-colored weave mark time passing, and by leaving the ends open this allows for time to continue and grow.
