Means of Living
Continuing in the vein of my concentric square obsession, this is the hand-colored sketch for my next large-scale (~8x24ft) piece, "Means of Living." Features Robert Kaufman chambray indigo, Danish STOF yarn dye wovens, and rare vintage hand-dyed, hand-woven Tubu from my trip to Shanghai in 2012. I am enjoying making the 33" concentric squares (1" finished strips) for "Dreamer" so much that I wondered what it would be like to just keep going. Excited to get started on this piece. I have at least one other large-scale concentric themed piece idea I'd like to pursue after this one.
