closer

Felted stitched strips

I am really pleased with this one. It captures the way a large piece is made up of repated smaller shapes, and that they are linked together, and patterned. It is clearly made of fabric, which is my medium (as I keep saying to anyone who asks) and speaks to but does not (I hope) slavishly copy the Anatsui pieces that were so staggering when I saw them in real life. It is smaller than any of his pieces, but I am working by myself, with limited materials and space.  

I may be done with this obsession. It was fun while it lasted. I think I learned something important about the characteristics of fabric that I find so compelling. I enjoyed working to someone else's concepts, filtered, of course, through my own perception.
