|"Time Trials", 9" x 27"|
In our world, it seems like things lose their cutting-edge or go out of vogue and are cast aside and left to the landfill…..which makes me wonder, all these abandoned earthly goods were once shiny and new and made someone very happy. Probably a metaphor for aging in there somewhere - but it's not intended. New becomes old……where does that time go and all that goes with it?
"Time Trials", 9"x 27", was inspired by a series of abandoned bicycles (coincidently) photographed in and around Stockholm this past summer. It is a raw-edge appliquéd collage of hand-dyed and painted cottons and silks, finished with machine quilting and hand embroidery.
