Equinox

art, recent work

In this moment, Earth is once more passing that point in space and time where day and night are equal all over the planet; the equinox. Inside the darkness of the Passage Room, the compost silently lives on. Outdoors, intense sunlight is reflected by the remaining snow, soothed by no foliage. I now begin working on a commission; a primary school is being renovated, and I have been appointed to do the artistic design.

Today’s preparations include laying out wool and dyeing silk. A cold breeze makes the silk flutter wildly on the clothesline. The wool is warm, dark and silvery. I experiment with nuno felting, a technique where thin fabric is attached to the piece of felt. More to follow…
