Gallery III

This series of cut works signifies an extension of my solely woven pieces. By slicing through my weavings of contemporary faces and tribal images, I’m cutting through time to expose the past. The underlying imagery reveals an older stratum of history based on archeological finds and early architecture. These ancient sites, fossils, cave paintings and petroglyphs represent links to society’s shared heritage. I am literally cutting into my own woven history to reveal images of humanity’s collective past, linking the viewer to other cultures, places and times.
The pieces on this page are stretched around wooden frames. Click on each photo for more information about attribution, fiber content and price. Contact the artist to purchase.
