Exhibited at MOCA, published in Woven Utopia Spring 2022 issue, published in Cantina Press debut book Esoteric

We Watch The Illusion With Unbearable Compassion is the title of the piece. Tarot, my relationship, time as a concept, poetry, the natural world, art history, folk craft, and the practice of art as meditation and medicine inspired this fiber self portrait of the present moment constructed with upcycled materials. A corresponding process book accompanies the piece with exploratory text, source images and materials,theory, and process work. This heavily embroidered tapestry is one in a triptych, a highly personal narrative done using universal archetypes to create general stories that can be personalized by the viewer. All materials for the piece were sourced from loved ones, peers, past works, and community members with all scraps being incorporated into new works for a zero waste result.
