Chinese Mask

 It has been so freezing over here during the last few days that I could hardly move. I am not used to this kind of cold, rainy, and windy weather, but it was the perfect opportunity for me to dig around my computer and find photos I haven't blogged about yet.  

I started this piece during my stay in China last summer, and finished it only a few weeks ago. It is made of several layers of fabric and paper, and it combines a few different works of mine. In addition, this piece incorporates a silk tourist handkerchief from the Hangzhou Silk Market, as well as felt that I received from a textile designer who attended the same residency program.

I love this. His expression! I love the way you've woven in the silk handkerchief as well, making the whole piece really symbolic and evocative on several levels - the literal, physical as well as the representational.
