Contemplation

My ‘self-portrait’ is part of a series of pixelated faces that I have been weaving. These are an interesting departure from my usual abstract geometrical themed tapestries. In this case, I started with a formal studio photograph, taken by friend and professional photographer, Donna Granata. With her permission, I cropped the image to the face, then reduced it to 26 x 20 pixels, then wove rows of squares, about an inch and a half on the side. The tapestry is part of the American tapestry Biennial 10 exhibit.—MFR

… from a series of “Excerpts”, the first time I cut up my paintings to weave fragments of them (back then before color copies, I actually cut up paintings that were acrylic on paper.)—JA
