Studio Walls

I have been playing with the different weights and densities of materials on the studio wall. To the right is a wonderful piece I am just understanding. This was a silk and merino wool sail that I gave to Double Edge Theatre's Hannah Jarrell as Penelope of The Odyssey. For two years, night after night of the summer production Penelope worried her way through this piece until it came apart, looking like this. I guess it is not just the wind and rain that adds the character of time to my work. Title: Penelope's Sail
