paper and thread assemblage – 20 x 20 inches

My recent work explores abstraction through the assemblage of paper and thread.  The colors and shapes come from photographs I have taken and I use them as I would use paint.  I piece them together in a quilt like manner and then “draw” on the surface with thread.  I am interested in energy and emotional response to source.  Each composition stands on its own as a transformation, moving from the recognizable to a study of form, color and surface.
