Where Ends Meet
These pieces continue my work and interest in immigration to the United States across our southern border.
In a sense, this is my version of a Mexican blanket—long pieces of fabrics which can be displayed rolled out or folded. The ends are intentionally unfinished, just knotted together.
I see beauty in diversity. By knotting many different fibers together, the plastic warp becomes strong. Preserved by a tightly woven weft, a large variety of texture and color is visible.
