|this is my senior art show at wheaton college. i painted these faces with fabric dye and a photo enlarger in a dark room. it was delightful. these are all people i find to be precious and beautiful. |
this is also the beginnings of my working with flowing fabric. i love it. i loved watching these blow in the wind. it was beautiful. just as skirts are in the wind.
this project reminded me of the work of christo and jeanne-claude, who are my artistic heros. it is especially reminiscent of running fence. like a kid with a drawing for her mom, i printed out pictures to send to christo ... which eventually led to working with him on the gates of central park in new york. he and jeanne claude are lovely.
