Study of the transition, decay and beauty of some forests in the Laurentian Region between Ontario and Quebec. My work refers to time, as a juxtaposing transition between photography (seconds on a shutter) and the process, be tapestry, quilt, fibre arts, and the time to process that short emotion that triggers the shot, and the process itself of the design and fabrication.
Working for a space with flat surfaces and light, as it was for the Lee Chin Gallery, the idea was to create a series of hanging textile forms, abstract views
traditional tapestry woven on haute-lisse with natural fibres. Installation of light suspended sculpture are made of layers of thull, embroidered and applique. Cotton, wool, linen, silk, metallic threads and raffia.
