The World of Threads Festival opens November 1st, and I am fortunate enough to have four pieces in the show. http://www.worldofthreadsfestival.com. This piece below is one of my entries. It's called "Letting Go", and it's about my dad's short struggle with the beginnings of Alzheimer's disease.
I guess we were fortunate that my dad's other medical issues meant he didn't have to suffer from this disease for very long, but it gave my family a small glimpse into what his future would have been.
This piece above is a new one I'm working on. I've been trying to make my lines more fluid, and I keep trying to say what I want as simply as possible. There has been some discussion today on the SAQA site about artist's getting stale, making the same old thing, stuck in a rut. Sometimes I wonder if that's me, but the thing is, I really love what I'm doing, and I don't feel I'm done with my message yet. What's my message? That the human body in all it's conditions, ages, and even deteriorations, is a marvelous thing.
