Hand in Warp

Handwoven tapestry is a three-dimensional construction of individual threads into endless combinations of structure, texture and color. With it I seek to bind the particularity of the physical world with deeply rooted metaphor, and the spirits of fabric, sculpture and painting with the abstracting pixilation of digital media.
