Go Figure Two!

Last night was the opening for Go Figure Two! at Las Manos Magicas in Houston.  TAODA has been blessed with so many gallery shows lately.  This one is in a folk art gallery, which is a different and interesting venue for us.

my contribution:  fruit kabobs

I have three pieces in this exhibit:
The Tempter



"Wisdom" is a cloth figure over a wire armature. The under tunic is made of hand dyed silk habotai, stamped with circles and swirls. A scattering of sequins are sewn on. The over tunic is made of many pieces of hand dyed silk gauze. These pieces were computer printed with the same Bible verse (“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him.” James 1:5), then the edges were burned and foiled, and lastly sewn together.

The wings are made from artificial flower petals, cut apart and hand painted, then reassembled into wings.
