To make pulp from jeans first I needed to cut the jeans 100% cotton into small 1/2 inch squares soak them in water overnight. Next the jean pieces are mixed in the beater for about an hour to turn the fabric into pulp. This photo is taken half way through the process.
This is a photo of a piece of paper I made with jean pulp mixed with abaca.
Clouds is an installation of 150 found doilies that have been incorporated with poured abaca pulp.
Here are some photos from my recent solo exhibition at the Rotunda Gallery in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
Tonight is the closing of our MFA-fibres exhibition at the Matahari Loft in Montreal, QC here are some images from my installation for those who can’t attend.
