Silk Fusion


Natural Disasters

Mount St Helen’s volcano was the first natural disaster that I experienced up close. More recently the fires in California, especially Paradise where I lived as a child, left me saddened by the devastation and the loss of lives. It seemed fitting to express my feelings in this series of work.

“Natural Disasters” is a series of work done using silk fusion, also known as silk paper. It is a process using silk slivers adhered together using a medium. I have added gold, silver and copper to some of the images. Yarns, fabric and found objects are prevalent in some of the pieces. I love this medium since I am a colorist. The silk can be vibrant and shiny. These abstract pieces are a deviation from the realistic human figure that I have always worked with. The bottom line is all about composition, the most important element in any art medium.
