The design of this hand woven tapestry works with the idea of negative space. There is no negative space in tapestry, the background and image must all be woven at the same time. Here they are integrated.
The goal of this work was to use the medium of handwoven tapestry to portray a dancer.
This is a haute lisse or high warp tapestry designed and handwoven by the artist. The image is of a belly dancer waiting backstage to perform.
