I've been spending the last few weeks working on this new series of embroideries on paper. I like the contrast of the delicate thread and thick watercolor paper, and the way my planned and carefully pre-poked holes lead to chaotic floats of thread. I also recently picked up some birch veneer on a whim and started some ideas in a new direction. Again the material contrast is driving my exploration, and the contrast between the organic, naturally formed patterns of the wood and traditional geometric embroidery designs which act as a nature analog.

My installation, Overgrowth, which was constructed during my residency last summer at Contemporary Craft, is on display in Lake City, SC as a part of the Artfields competition. I drove up yesterday with my lovely assistant Lysa to install it in a really great space called Emerson Row. The shop is full of beautiful pieces selected and often refurbished by owner Emily Richardson. It was a great fit for Overgrowth, which grew down the brick walls and onto an antique hutch.
Artfields is an art competition in Lake City, South Carolina, which runs from April 25th until May 4th. If you in the are stop by and check it out!
