Fiber and thread
collage is an outgrowth of my ribbon weaving and sewing activities.
The initial pick-up of each collage
is left to chance,
unlike the ordered progression of ribbon weaving. This is followed
by manipulation, addition or removal of specific fibers, filaments
or threads, or scraps of ribbon or fabric – controlling
color and pattern and the selection of threads which may be
fine or thick,
straight or crimped or fuzzy. My aim is a pleasing composition.
Titles come afterwards and are often obvious (to me, at least).
