 *BEST OF SHOW AWARD! Uncommon Threads Exhibition 2011

This little book was part of a bigger artwork which was selected for the National Argentinean Textile Art Show in 2011 in Buenos Aires. It shows my process from a formal calligraphy into a more personal writing and my process in the study of shape and counter/shape.

A story is unfold, and from it thousands of pieces flourish Some of them are truly works of art, but by themselves they lose their meaning Save them! Preserve them with love because with love they were woven In the future they will become part of some other fabric Keep on weaving and do not ask about them it’s no time to reason there will come a time to unfold them Just for today, do not think, weave, weave, weave! Weave like crazy, weave with tears, Weave with anger, weave while screaming, weave with euphoria Weave words and weave good dreams Do not get discouraged… keep on weaving there are many lives and many knittings Somewhere you will find the pattern.
