“Forest Floor”, my exhibit of ecoprinted and embroidered art cloth and “A State of Transparency”, Karen Goetzinger's white organdy sculptural panels and constructions are complementary installations in adjoining galleries at the Shenkman Arts Centre in Ottawa. Thanks to curator Mike Taylor for an inspired pairing of installations exploring two artists' themes and approaches to textiles as art.
Here is some video footage along with some stills. We beg you to be indulgent, dear viewers – these are our first attempts at filming and editing!
A few detail stills of “Forest Floor”
“Earth and Heaven” (rust printed and embroidered vintage linen panel on black wool). Slashed and torn.
“Marigold” panel. Eco printed silk. Embroidered, burned, gilded.
“A State of Transparency” – Karen Goetzinger.
An ideal city, lit from within, communicating a humanizing warmth and purity.
A movie of the installation is coming (I hope!) Some stills meantime:
Until next time.
