Thank you! To all those generous folks who have sent lace. (and occasionally other surprises like pigments).
During 2020 quarantine as I was working on recent lace projects, boxes of lace began arriving from friends and from strangers around the country. Each piece is photographed, measured, and archived before being dyed and/or incorporated into a work. The recent installations are made wholly from donated lace. I hope to create a book of the archive along with the installations. This is an ongoing project and not all donations have been added yet. Check back as more info i.
I am awed by the generosity and thoughtfulness of artists, friends and strangers. These contributions have become part of the story of the work, and are included in exhibition info.
Meg Pierce, who sent the first enormous box of lace early on, which seemed to inspire others. Sadly I did not photograph each piece in this early trove. The first Lamentation works are comprised of much from her collection.
