“Facade VI” 21″ x 33″ “Façade VI” is part of my series focused on transparency, texture, shape and line. I have used loosely woven scrim, and a variety of sheer and textured materials ranging from hand-dyed silks to burlap to screening. It is all stitched to sheer silk organza, creating subtle color and value shifts as one color is placed to overlap another.

What is 侘寂 wabi sabi?  Wabi Sabi is both a philosophy or world view and a design aesthetic. It is a feeling that can be hard to describe unless it’s something you’ve experienced. Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity (roughness or irregularity), simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
