About the piece:
Unity and Variety are two principles of composition in art, and they are two driving principles of community as well. The weavings are as individual as the people who made them, beautiful and unique. And I see their beauty increased when they are joined in the larger piece, part of the larger community. We may only see the colors and textures of the weavings, but the CDs contain data and information, much like the hidden, inner story of the individuals around us.
The CDs and yarn are thrifted materials (Value Village, others) that found new, upcycled life in our artwork.
I'll also have a smaller piece of 64 weavings that I made: "I Contain Multitudes". My title is based on a quote from Walt Whitman: "Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself. I am large. I contain multitudes."
If you're in Bellevue, come see our work. Add your weaving too.
