It’s All Rust

My newest body of work continues the exploration of mortality through process. Shibori bound silk is dyed using rust - imparting the fabric with particles that will eventually disintegrate the material. The weight of display will also lead to the destruction of the textured image/form of each work. The balance of time, weight, and chemicals are each at play, racing together to see which will claim the work first.
