Looking Thru Pink Glasses
Definition: "a cheerful or optimistic view of things, usually without valid basis."
This series examines migration, immigration and views in the western world. It leaves with more questions then answers - a dialogue in process. It goes back to old ways: weaving. At the most elemental level, weaving consist of warp and weft, each running in a separate direction but intertwined.
All pieces are woven with the same warp - a shiny, slippery pink colored rayon thread.
