Woman Sitting In Red Chair
Like all our compositions, our process of taking turns building over each other’s work played out in a very dynamic and unexpected way. The building of the first several layers of this piece had shown itself to be a vertical landscape. After years of being set aside, the ‘canvas’ was finally picked up again. Lori placed some unusual shapes, and once Lisa added to them, those shapes took the form of a chair and table. Soon this figure appeared.
We were delighted with the arrival of this ‘new’ subject matter. We felt it fitting to feature this fiber ‘painting’ at the OPB Oregon Art Beat Alumni exhibit this past March. If you’d like to view our Art Beat segment which first aired on OPB in 2004, click on the video here.
