upcoming show : ARC Gallery

Sad Eyes from my Repetition series will be included in FLOW: The Essence of Paint at the ARC Gallery. The show will open June 4th in San Francisco.

Sad Eyes, 2008. 36" x 36"  Gampi paper, rope, colored pencil under acrylic glazes.
The national exhibition was curated by Andre Rozanoff, director of Cain Schulte Contemporary Art in San Francisco. The show highlights the mastery of technique and creative use of paint, as well as the qualities of composition, line, color, texture, and scale. My work in a painting show? I know! But the Repetition series was really my bridge into fiber art and I have very fond memories of working and learning on this series. The pieces include rope, twine, handmade waxed paper and embroidery.

And for those of you who can't make it to the show, there will be an online gallery with two more of my Repetition series included.

Bowls, 2009. 36" x 36"  Handmade paper and rope under acrylic glazes.

Gris, 2009. 36" x 48"  Waxed paper, rope, embroidery thread under acrylic glazes.
More details to follow soon as to the opening reception and online gallery link. See more all of my Repetition series here.

Hi Kathryn, re: your comment on Victoria's blog, give me a call at the RA Showroom or just drop by on a Friday for the best selection of discos... (makes it sound all mirror ball, right? :)

congratulations! it's good that you were able to sneak fiber work into a painters show, i think they (painters) take themselves too seriously sometimes.
i just discovered konnyaku paper (konnyaku starch painted onto washi paper so that it acts more like fabric) and i think it's a medium you might like. i'm thinking of the possibilities, along with shifu thread (paper yarn). there's so many things you can do with paper, and combined with fiber techniques it's a definite creative inspiration.

Oh my, Anastasia, I will certainly check that paper out! Thank you! I do have some of that lovely paper yarn and am itching to find a way to use it!
