My Unweavings® fiber art pieces for home, synagogue, and office convey spiritual narratives through form, color, texture and calligraphy. The words within each piece and the unwoven form suggesting these words serve as a visual midrash, evoking the poetry of various Biblical, spiritual and poetic texts. Unwoven spaces form symbolic shapes – wings, ladders, prayer shawls, veils, trees, falling waters, rivers, the sacred architecture of windows, domes, gates. The narrative is enhanced by my own distinctive iconography, indicating guardians, messengers, journeying, praying and other figures. My work alludes to the oldest traditions of narrative textiles, but in a completely contemporary idiom.
