Ties That Bind
Another opportunity to create art as a memorial came my way recently. Lauren wanted a piece made from her late husband's silk ties, more than sixty of them! She wanted a landscape and the intention was to hang the piece on a curved wall (the "silo") which houses a spiral staircase in their home in the Berkshires. When I sorted through the ties, they fell into seasonal categories, so I proposed a landscape that would "move through time" -- beginning in autumn, into winter, with the promise of spring at the end. Here's what I was inspired to create. For a closer view, double click on the image.
