So here are a few photos of my tapestries from varying angles.
My work was based on the idea that we have times in our lives when we are snuggled up cosily in our little cocoons but then things happen (whether caused by outside forces or from within) and we have to move on, change our directions, etc. Then we start again in another cocoon and the journey goes on.
The thought behind these pieces is that the front of the tapestry is what you see from the outside and the back represents what is going on out of sight. So there are bumps and rough patches visible from the outside but inside is more complicated and messy - there are soft spots as well as rough spots but it is not the same as the image we present to the world. It is not necessarily worse, it is just different.
You can see this one on the loom, and just off the loom, here.
It is the same one as the above image. It moves gently in the moving air.
Here is a link showing the back tapestry on the loom.
The front tapestry is here.
This is taken from below, experimenting with the camera settings.

|My pieces are the cocoons along the window wall and the three tapestries hanging in the distance. The afternoon light was lovely on the teardrop pieces.|
