Some of my large matted and framed thread paintings can now be purchased at the artisan district ( formerly Botanicals) 610-612 Queen Street Fredericton NB. Hours are Tues.- Sat. 10-5 and Fri. 10-6.
The Oct. 23 Thread Painting class scheduled for the Andrew and Laura McCain Gallery in Florenceville- Bristol NB was postponed because of the covid 19 circuit breaker in that part of the district. It has been rescheduled to April 24, 2022.
Here is a short video about my process.
There will be thread paintings and wall quilts in my exhibition at the McCain Gallery.
My piece, Out of This World was accepted into the SAQA ( Studio Art Quilt Associates) Atlantic Regional Show , Commotion which opens on June 7 at the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design in Sydney NS and will then travel throughout NS and NB until June 2023.
Inspired by photos from the Solar Orbiter I chose to paint images of the corona teaming with thousands of solar flares. The images revealed a multitude of small flaring loops, erupting bright spots and dark moving fibrils and have been called campfires. Using these energized charged particles, hundreds of time hotter than the sun displaying turbulence, turmoil and agitation as the impetus for my artwork, gave me a chance to express the feelings we have all shared during this tumultuous year.
All the fabric for the piece was painted.
