FIRE-SALE - kashing in the karma!

this is an end of an era sale. prices are firm as they reflect 1/3 - 1/5 of gallery valuation. the work has been safely stored for some years now since retiring the studio. its time these last pieces are liberated. i invite you to take this opportunity to own one or more from this selection - the final sale of my treasured collection.  some pieces are best pick up only in NY catskill area.

Jubilee is a word on peace and social justice. By re-valuing the humble human work of stitchery, the work itself has taught me the socio-economic pattern of global justice. As seamstress and outsider artist, my own story is stitched to so many others as a patchwork quilt is sewn from bits of salvaged, re-purposed cloth, in order to survive, my life experience has shaped my art. I am honored to be a stitch in the ancient practice of story-telling in stitchery - a part of the lexicon of folk language, of women all over the globe as well as men in many cases. Tribal communities employ the humble stitch as a visual voice, such as in India, the practice of piecework is called Kathak – a combining of fragments to tell a story, document a life passage. This work continues my relationship to this story, herstory. It is a mending of the broken human spirit, evoking heroic images of humanity - enveloped in the metaphor of the quilt and of the body as a sacred text. These works are receptive objects, a covering of grace, protection, shelter, a sacred scroll to contain the book of life.


detail of the work



Assemblages of over-dyed, vintage salvaged household linens are pierced and marked ceremoniously in the way that tattoo or mendhi is to skin. messages written as prayer on the body as a sacred book. With inks, beeswax, dyes and encaustics I uncover the figures buried in the shroud and revive them with a blessing of dozens of hours of hands-on stitchery. The visceral action of this work is a liberation of prayer - Prayer whether the spoken word as it manifests truth through mantra and affirmation or by any sound, movement or task which is drawn out of the body.
