New Tapestry: Self Portrait as Mary Kate with Carpet Bag
After my stint away at Art Basel Hong Kong and staying warm inside on the weekends, knitting, I thought that it was time to get some weaving done! I have been working on some small pieces that are based on collages that I did awhile ago. I am enjoying working these tapestries as shaped pieces, meaning that they still reference their collage roots. It also allows me to play around with them in other collages. You can see below that I thought it would be fun to add the tapestry to a magazine cover!
The tapestry has been shortlisted for the Kate Derum Small Tapestry Award 2013, so it will be on display later in August. I will post the dates and shortlist information closer to the show. I'm looking forward to seeing the other tapestries from around the world!
