Woven Tapestry
121w x 81h cm

I am committed to creating  visual art that encourages consideration of our relationship to the natural world. Forlorn references the tragic story of the passenger pigeon; many, few, to one, the trajectory to extinction. Through my work  I am interested in exploring  the anthropocentric tradition of using decorative pattern to mimic, order and romanticize the natural world.  In this work the decorative elements reference this human-centered focus, creating  a border or parenthesis containing the narrative of the central field.
