" Painted first on a square piece of cotton cloth that I had in my studio for years and years, it lay loose, draped over stacks of books for company, before it announced that it wanted to be wrapped tightly across this hardboard panel. I complied and was relieved to find that its subtle cheekiness remained intact. This piece embodies how my work in the textile realm has come full circle to dovetail with the fine art realm." - Marilet
Made from earth pigments and all natural materials, the pieces in this collection are all particles of nature re-formed, connecting the world outside with our worlds indoors. They have a steady presence and are composed of imperfect structures, which despite their irregularities (or perhaps thanks to them) are resilient and flexible, states of being I hope to embody. The imagery used is composed of positive and negative areas which invite the eye to move around, playfully distracting the mind from its preoccupations: a visual meditation of sorts.
