This new series is about connectedness. They are going to be a part of the Imagining Ourselves exhibit at Art Lounge in Beirut this summer. I had to crank these ones out because a catalogue is being made now for the exhibit. I'm planning on making four more. I would love to say "at least four more." We'll see!
Knit I. mixed media. 14" x 11"
Knit II. mixed media. 14" x 11"
Knit III. mixed media. 14" x 11"
Knit IV. mixed media. 14" x 11"
Each of the separate portraits is on its own stretched canvas, then mounted to an 14" x 11" background support made of stretched canvas. The knitwork was done separately on small knitting needles with fine hemp twine and super thin bookbinding thread. And yes, I blocked each piece!
Now I'm ready for some ice cold margarita nights. But first, tonight I'll be at the Franz Ferdinand/Death Cab For Cutie show. Bought the tickets two months ago. And I remembered! Yay!
