Artist Statement

This series of digital weavings creates a sensory experience that heightens awareness of tactility created by phenomenological movements of elastic wave-like patterns. These works are influenced by my background of being a competitive swimmer being in the water. Dynamic actions such as floating, splashing, bending, and submerging provides inspiration for the development of the undulating structural transformation of weave patterns and lines. I am using traditional weaving and digital language in order to reflect upon present conditions, where directional forces are at play with moments of activity and rest.
