Winter to Spring : Nomad Archive

Posted on: Monday, April 01, 2013

In preparation for my transition to Sofia, Bulgaria, for Spring/Summer 2013, I decided to photograph some of the fiber forms in my studio with new backdrops. I did this partly because I sometimes get very nostalgic for hand-crafted work that I have to leave behind – particularly during this four to five year period when my family and I are living overseas.


These images are ideas that I can essentially take with me as visual touchstones while on the road. Given that I have multiple new projects underway, it is always good to reminded of where I have been and what might unfold – naturally, and in a new context.

Stay tuned for more details on what is in the works during the months to come.

I was wondering about the book of plant studies/drawings/paintings that you have used as a backdrop. Who is it by?

Also the last image, the one with the flower like organic shape you have created reminds me of dandelions, especially with that colour of wool? Or felt?
What happens to the pieces that you leave behind?
