Intuition – fiber/dyed, silkscreened, painted, stamped, discharged on cotton; 59 X 20 in.
The focus of my art is the interior world of women and their power as healers, leaders, mothers, wise women and the creative muse. Fiber has belonged to the realm of women since prehistoric times when women wove baskets for food and water, constructed garments from hides and twisted natural materials into useful objects.
With “Intuition”, I present a figure containing the mystery of symbols and knowledge passed from woman to woman, down through generations, without a guidebook.
