Dusk to Dawn

Oil and mixed media on canvas

Like the canvas I paint on, the crochet panels I use in my paintings are made from cotton, and therefore are an expansion of the surface medium. I use these patterned and textured panels to represent the architecture and geometry of Nature; like how a tree grows, the movement of water currents, not to mention life cycles. The crochet is a metaphor for interconnections, relationships - those within Nature, and ours to that Nature.
