There You Are

Rochester Art Museum (Rochester, MN)

28” x 29” X  2.5”

wood, acrylic, latex, panelboard

This fiberboard weaving is housed within a handmade frame built to best showcase the three components of my art that excite me most: color, movement and texture. 


There You Are I &  II were the first completed pieces in a series that further investigated my relationship with color, texture and movement. Essentially the pieces woven together came from a complete painting that I deconstructed, mixed up and reassembled. Metaphors of connectivity, community, relationship and rapport are rich in this series.


The white frame and background allows full focus on the color and canvas-like texture of the fiberboard and also gives the clearest possible visual as shadows move and interact behind the weaving.
