Okay, so a few days ago I said I'd write about my new art projects. Well, here's my plan:
In the past few years, I've made pieces that fall into one of three categories: 1) clothing items made from maps; 2) small hand-embroidered versions of photographs; and 3) needle-punched/felted images that are usually more somber than the other two types of work.
So I'm going to make a series of images now, and I have an idea for each category. Category #1 all relates to my life, in the autobiographical sense; #2 relates to family (and by this I mean the people I'm related to AND those people I choose to call family); and #3 are 99% the result of dreams.
These categories are really just a pattern I recognized in past work that I'm now using as a basis for future work. Does this make sense to anyone besides me? I hope so. Look for progress reports in the next few months, but for now I hope you enjoy the photos of past work (TOP: "Baby's Toys" 1993,oil on paper. BOTTOM: "Glance" 2006, felted wool.).
