“Spring Rain” (Windows #1)

 

This is the first in a series of works all themed around “windows.” Each work focuses on the ideas of transparency and light. Through ondulé weaving, the warp threads are crammed into tight dense areas, or spread to create diaphanous transparent areas.

Windows are something you look through, and reveal what is hidden behind a wall. But windows are also something that obstruct and alter and frame your view. Raindrops that drip down a window pane leave a trail. Supplemental warp threads are trimmed and left hanging on one side of the cloth to add an element of “natural” randomness as they curl and dangle.

This piece can be viewed from either the “front” or the “back,” but is best hung where it can be seen from both sides. Displaying it so that you can view the way light interacts through the piece is ideal.
