Yesterday I finished the installation of a project I’ve been working on all summer. “Prayer” is a series of 15 ten foot hanging banners that I created by distressing sheer fabric with coffee and ink, then photocopying some very personal journal entries onto the fabric. I then screenprinted a vortex shape in the middle of each “page”. I was able to get one more element of depth by adding a third layer of sheer fabric that I inserted thin pieces of wire into. The wire can be manipulated to create an interesting dimension.
The inspiration for this piece comes from the journal entries.
