Richard has set up a studio for me in his garage, and I have been working there today. It’s nice to have a change of scenery. Of course, I forgot to bring up a couple of vital pieces of equipment, but nevertheless I feel I have been making steady progress. As I explore the materials I have bought with me I can hear Richard in his studio, making music. There is a sense of companionship, even though we are working separately.
I am having a solo show at the Incinerator in six months time, so I’m trying to get a lot of work done so that I have as many options as possible. I’m working to the theme ‘Lucent’, so all the pieces will have something to do with light, (or its absence, perhaps..)
This is waxed paper, folded, with stitching in silver thread. I bought the thread at a stoop sale in Brooklyn, so I’m really enjoying remembering my short time there, while I stitch. My needle makes lovely circular marks in the paper that let the light through.
