Piece made while learning how to use a TC2 and understanding how change in structure reflects change in shade.

      ABOUT

Raised by an architect and engineer, structures have always been comforting to me. Grids are sentimental and systems give support.  I work with textiles because weaving naturally lends itself to the idea of comfort being found in tactile stability.  My experimentation with structure, material, line, and repetition create pieces that contain depth, weight, form, and perspective.

Woven Line Drawing 

36"x 52" 

cotton

2022

Created a simple line drawing and photocopied the image over itself again and again until the page was full.  The TC2 acts almost like a printer and inspired me to weave it and see how the image translates across mediums.  

Concrete Circle

8" x 8"

Paper pulp 

2020

I was working on creating a series of concrete casts.  However I ran into problems with the weight of the material on my body and the environment.  In search of a material that took on similar appearances I found newspaper pulp was an easy replacement.

Terrain

18" x 24"

cotton, linen, wire, and paper 

2022

Woven on a jack loom, I cut hole in the weaving and folded it over on itself to create layers.  Inspired by the shapes and textures of Iceland in the spring time.   

Movement Distortion

36" x 48"

Cotton 

2022

The boxes are stills from a video I took of the ocean.  The background is a close up of a woven bag made of hemp rope.  In this piece I layered two ideas.  The first was a test to tell if I could see the differences in the frames clearly and possibly reassembly them into a woven video.  The second, to see how woven texture can be seen through a woven texture.
