Using the random strips leftover from my other Kindergarten Collages (which feature my tempera on newsprint Kindergarten paintings,) I weave them into various sizes and configurations and attach them to abstractly painted wooden supports. The goal being to make a lively visual interplay with the bright strips and their very patterned backgrounds.
In this series, I aim to use every last scrap in making new art from old and continuing my collaboration with my younger self. Back then if I and my classmates drew spontaneous patterns, we called them a “design” and just went with it, coloring in the shapes or adding more lines to suit. That’s the spirit with which I am generating these weavings, keeping the choices simple and letting the serendipity of it play first fiddle.
Weaving No. 2 is jazzier, playing angles and staying loose. The strips spread out and away in an unraveling gesture which lets the lipstick red background join in the dance as well.
