Night Horizon #3

Monoprinted Quilt

83” x 43″


Night Horizon #3 is a (dis)charged meditation. Amidst the pandemic and ever-changing travel bans to my home country, the tone of everything became bleak and dreary. I found discharging and discharged fabric calling out to me. The discharged fabrics represent my new mood and our new circumstances. In much of my work, I meditate on the Atlantic divide between my home and adopted country. The horizon, a constant presence wherever I find myself, became a grounding and reassuring element.
