Phantasmic is a handwoven textile artwork that presents myriad layers of patterns and fabric mutations that offer numerous interpretations as the viewer lingers.  The interplay of positive and negative woven patterns references the mutational ability of nature. Organic shapes collide over a background of diamonds in this piece.  Are these sea creatures swimming over the ocean floor or microbes attracted to each other in a unique biosphere?  You can interpret this piece many ways because it is easy to get lost in the breadth of colors and patterns.

In 2020, the fabric of our lives was torn apart and replaced with uncertainty, doubt, confusion and danger.  It forced an isolation which led to contemplation for many folks.  One positive outcome was the chance to slow down and catch one’s breath (without a ventilator) for the first time in a long while.  We realized that the hyper-fast pace of fashion/news/social media/ad nauseum wasn’t healthy.  A new appreciation for a slower, deliberate lifestyle emerged– one that many artists and craftspeople, including me, already embraced.
