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.
In Weaving No 6 we find a soft rainbow palette emphasizing the blues and greens with sparkles of the warmer colors. The weaving is turned from square to diamond shape with the ends left on the longer side. It relaxes there in a swirling neutral gray, just being its calm and happy self.
