See my Exhibition at the O Gallery!

From January 15-March 8, 2020 I have an exhibition at the O Gallery @44 Gaukel in Kitchener, ON Canada.

This exhibition consists of my framed hand dyed and hand embroidered dish cloths that resemble aerial views of farmlands. These works are professionally framed in glass. They are wire mounted and framed in white.

I love the white frames in these works because the dish cloths are so colourful and often have areas of intense vibrancy.

Another element to this exhibition is my handmade abaca paper with embedded sewn thread drawings to mimic the act of farming the day in day out labour of the back and fourth motion. This repetition of farming coincides with the repeated lines. These paper drawings are displayed with clipboards as a field study. The clipboard presentation to me implies a sense of research or note-taking.

Making paper from jeans 

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.
