As the sequestration of the unique and difficult coronavirus 19 grinds on, things come to mind. I mentioned in the last post, just as it looks like everything is on hold in the art world, a couple of artworks are finding temporary homes. One is shipping to Mark Arts in Wichita, KS for a show on abstract art. Titled as “Solar Flare 1”, this art is just made to put a smile on your face. It is a riot of colors and techniques in this piece! Digital embroidery artwork is intricate and beautiful.

Digital Embroidery Artwork

It is digital embroidery, complex hand dyeing, cotton needle felting, free motion embroidery, inset armatures, and PINS! Made back in 2017, this piece is a part of a very colorful series exploring beauty and radiance. This series has never been shown before. So, I am pleased to send this wonderful work of art to MarkArts. It was truly fun to make.

When I began the piece, I had just gotten these cool red gluing pins. Pins are a wonderful tool to help with assembly. But, low and behold, they looked great left in place. NOW, here we are 2 years later, and the pins look like coronavirus! What will it speak to in another two years in a new context? Art has meaning across time and in changing contexts.

As we get this new website UP and running, just know that all this work is available.  In the meantime, feel free to contact me about prices if you are interested.
