This week I installed a new piece combining my Neon Clouds with Neon Bloom. I added a layer of Blue suspended embroideries to my field and titled this work Pink Field, Blue Fog.
This new installation work is installed at the Olin Art Gallery at Washington & Jefferson College.
Pink Field, Blue Fog uses ideas around the space of the garden, as well as silk flowers as it’s 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 made of thousands of these embroidered units that are 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.
Many thanks to the Ontario Arts Council for their generous support of this show throught the Exhibition Assistance Program. Without their help, this show would not have been possible.
