Here are a couple of quick pics of my " Curiosity Cabinet " for Gallery 96's collections show in May.
It is a collection of imaginary plants made from fabric, paper, yarn, zippers, etc. the book on top of the cabinet is made up of gouache paintings embellished with embroidery and beads. The inspiration came from my Mother's 70 yr. old plant press.

...a narration spun through work that pushes the limits as to what an artist can do with fibre today. Similar to social misfits that sit on the outskirts of society, like mad inventors experimenting, and geniuses with universal knowledge, this exhibition encourages the far reaches of thought and imagination. Does society hang by a thread, will the Fates cut the cord, oh what a tangled web we weave…here is an opportunity to see work that follows a string into a world on the periphery.
