40″ x 54″ Framed

“Fractured” is created from my hand painted silk organza. It’s inspired by the Korean Pojagi style of wrapping cloths, with seams that create compositional lines in the finished work.

This piece started out very orderly, until we experienced a devastating ice storm, compounded by health issues with my spouse and myself. Most people experience times when life can be very difficult, with nothing going right. I slashed this piece, so it would more accurately express the problems we experienced. Like most people, we then repaired the damage. The resulting scars and distortions speak loudly about the difficult events we survived.

It is loosely attached to sheer organza, and framed. The piece moves slightly with air currents.
