[“6:20am-8:41pm / Miami”] represents a chromatic timeline distilled from the observation of our physical surroundings. Grounded in light, reflected on water, emerging out of a humid sky – this work is about perception. Rhythm and repetition of found natural forms are extracted from commonplace situations: At 9:52 am, I encounter a fallen palm branch in a parking space, and decide that it is worth my time.
The craft involved in making each physical tapestry is essential to the process, as observation from the eye guides the hand to create each textile work. In contrast to the simulated experience of the digital world – the meditative action of making becomes paramount. Here, we are asked to slow down and take in the tropical air with more than a fleeting glance: To look deeply, feel the materials, and reflect on the beauty of this place.
Being present in the moment, acutely aware of the relationship we have with our environment, and the transitions we undergo either in unison, or in discord. This work documents that intangible chromatic pulse, and celebrates it with hand-dyed fabric, screenprinted mesh, and a gradient of colors.
