Rainbow Child 20" wool on poplar dowels
Rainbow Child is bright and playful piece loves bright light! It is an unexpected palette of bright and deep colors that brings joy immediately into a space. Inspired by the birth of a rainbow child this mandala evokes a sense that there is hope for the world.
For this type of weaving the loom is hand build and woven into the piece. Wool and silk are rich in color and texture and hold the vibration of my intention as I create from my inner process.
I love to play with the tension of colors like harmonizing in music the pull away from each other and unexpected color combinations bring a richness and vibrancy like life itself. I particularly enjoy allowing a color palette to fully express itself in gradations and juxtaposition. The art of mandala weaving allows me to enjoy both symmetry and asymmetry, to play with light, space and dimension. This three dimensional art will last for generations with proper care.
