"Though my hands and feet are bound..... I gather". Janet Frazee Wade
Art is a personal expression. For me, it involves the gathering of found objects and the mindful assemblage of these objects into being. A collection of white dresses from the 1940-50 have become my go-to canvas . Each dress is dyed, over-dyed, ripped, mended, reconstructed, deconstructed and embellished. Like tattered pages in a well read journal, each entry draws the viewer into a better understanding of the difference between reality and fantasy; truth and falsehoods.
