Fabric and Encaustic 

Works in fabric and encaustic are “stitch-shaped” to create a dimensional surface; some stitches are guided by intuition, others follow creases formed by crushing the fabric. When the fabric is dipped in clear encaustic medium, it becomes translucent and suggests stiffened skin. Sometimes the wax affects the overall shape in unpredictable ways. This ultimate surrender of control is a risk that becomes part of the artwork. The resulting gestalt might suggest an enigmatic text, a woven textile, a mood, or a gesture.
