Crane Wife #6

Crane Wife #6. Approximately 14" X 21" X 1/2"
This piece highlights the contrast between the black and natural linen.  I like how the diamond shapes seem to hover over the surface of the cloth. 

Artist Statement-Structure-2013
Structure is the potential that ordinary materials have to develop into something new.  A cone of yarn or a flat piece of paper need structure to become cloth or a paper crane.  Without structure, the materials are undeveloped, immature, and not fully realized.  Separately, weaving and origami become possible when structural processes are imposed onto their raw materials.  Together, weaving and origami are merged together to create a new art form.  This new form celebrates their formative kinship.
