VERY pleased that one of my favorite works has been accepted into the FORM NOT FUNCTION exhibit at the Carnegie Center for Art & History in New Albany, Indiana, from January 6 through March 3, 2012:
ALLELE -The Genome Project Series
and a detail
I have combined both free-motion machine stitching and quilting with hand stitching on this piece, a technique which I have been using quite often. The fabrics are the delectable African (Ghana) hand-dyed batiks on jacquard woven cotton cloth that I’ve used exclusively in this series inspired by the mapping of the human genome. And the fabrics and this series has led me to another series which is dominating my current work, Organically Grown. One good thing leads to another, it is a good life!
