Out of Africa: Primal Diaspora
I was honored to have my work selected for an exhibit in Washington DC, sponsored by the Textile Museum and Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA).
The show opened on April 16, 2016 and ran through September 4.
The theme of the show was Diaspora: Stories of Migration. As humanity arose and evolved in Africa, my piece symbolizes the dispersal of humans to populate the earth.
The twisting lines join, separate, and overlap, showing the convoluted paths of humans in their journey -- exploring, grouping, regrouping, and moving on.
Starting with the primaries, the colors blend to add secondary and tertiary shades, representing our vast human diversity.
One of my nursery rhyme series.
Two New Series: I'm working on two new series -- "Communications" and "Relationships." I hope to have some photos up soon.
