Our lives are built upon stories and patterns that we create and repeat. Alterations happen gradually, occasionally drastically, then new patterns, new repeats.
My weaving practice explores the complexities of viewing: the subtle shifting layers we look through and the new perceptions that emerge from new ways of seeing. Embracing the technical challenges of floor looms, I manipulate historic weaving patterns and structures using materials such as bamboo, steel, linen and fishing line. Working from the intended intersection of warp with weft, patterns emerge, dissipate, lines diminish before reappearing, and threads woven in then float through space.
Working across scales, from postage stamp-sized weavings to space-specific installations, my work reflects a compulsion to know and expose each element of the patterns we see.
