This is my very simple solution to a theme that did not capture my imagination, mainly due to the fact that I am up to my eyeballs in the work for my solo show. This is constructed from my hand dyed silks and organza for the geometric forms.
My original idea had to do with my ineptness when it comes to numbers and math. I was going to do a portrait of myself with spiky things emerging from my brain. On the right side the colorful spiky things would have had words like color, texture, pattern, etc. On the left side, they would have been blank. It was just too complicated for me to pull off. So I went for keep it simple, stupid!!
