New Iteration of the Flowerburst Installation
Hammer Cut Stitch Repeat opened yesterday evening at Circle Craft gallery, and one of the pieces included in the show is my Flowerburst installation. This is the third time I’ve shown the piece, and every time I present a new iteration. You can see previous versions at Mary E. Black gallery in Halifax, and at Hot Art Wet City.
The original work was blue and last year I started making yellow and red ones to expand the work further. When I started putting things together for this installation I decided to incorporate some of the red pieces, and chose white foam core as the base instead of black. The photo below is a small part of the installation at Circle Craft gallery with one of the paper wearables positioned beside it. I love how these two works tie into one another in terms of colour and technique.
It was a really terrific opening night for the show with many friendly faces in attendance, and plenty of enthusiasm for the work. The show continues until October 11th, so there is plenty of time still to see.
