ancestors up close



                   Concerning my work, especially the “Ancestor’s Tapestry”.  The background represents many intersecting branches of the family tree uniting the various portraits of different races and genders. The small applied elements are not feathers but leaves. The portraits were woven in very fine metallic thread in only black and white thread. I mixed the strands of thread to create various grey coloration.   —JER
