One of my largest installations is now up at the School of Art and Design at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, LA. This exhibition titled, Pink Field, Blue Fog runs from November 7th to December 20th, 2016.
With the help of a talented team of students, this installation came to life over a week long period at the beginning of November. We spent full days in the space attaching single threads to the ceiling with small embroidered pink and blue embroideries attached to the end of each string. Over the course of 6 days we slowly accumulated volume to create the impression of a field.
This installation, Pink Field, Blue Fog uses ideas around the space of the garden, as well as silk flowers as its starting point. This piece is a new installation/embroidery work based on an imagined and abstracted field of flowers and hovering cloud. The large installation is comprised of thousands of these pieces installed by single threads hanging from the gallery ceiling creating a field of flowers and a field of colour. This piece transforms the interior space into neon environment that is unnatural and glowing, creating a faux surreal landscape.
