About these artworks:
Textiles are malleable materials, enemies of precision. Photography is almost the opposite, in concept. Here an instant is held rigid and permanence is inevitable.
To create these images of temporary fiber sculptures, I randomly arranged the same strip of painted fabric on different backgrounds. I took a photo each time, then destroyed the shape and started all over again. Then, I played with the contrast and color saturation of each image using photo editing applications.
The resulting abstract shapes, tones and textures were intriguing and suggested moods, and figures for the titles.
Photography was both, a metaphor of time and the method of documentation in the creative process of these images.
