Kindy Weaving No.5


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.

With Weaving No. 5 we have a collection of strips emphasizing the three primary colors: red, yellow and blue. They are woven in two interlocking angular shapes which then contrast with the loose checkerboard strokes of the soft yellow behind them.
