Statement about Reminders

My continuing and underlying intent has been to integrate woven structure and image so they are physically and visually inseparable.  Varying series have evolved over time within these general parameters.  I have  translated  systems  of marks  –  diagrams, ciphers, and  computer gibberish  into  my weavings.

Reminders continues within this realm but visually  plays with my every day notes and doodles rather than known systems  I concentrated  on previously.  It is a  Jacquard weaving on a six color  cotton  tapestry warp  with two color cotton wefts.   I wove it in North Carolina at the Oriole Mill.
