During the month of July, I will be exhibiting five textiles in the gallery at Sip Coffeehouse, 1223 W. Grand Ave., in Chicago.
Evoking the Tibetan prayer flags which inspired them, this grouping of five panels sends prayers of compassion and peace into the universe as the wind stirs the fabrics into movement. Four panels are made from hand-dyed linen, cotton, and silk vintage textiles that belonged to my mother and grandmothers. The fifth panel is depicted below and is comprised of hand stitched batik cotton fabrics.
The textiles in this series link the past to the present and invite us to reimagine ourselves and our world.
Sip is open everyday.
