The fiber works in Invocations express ideas about transcendence in the yoga spiritual tradition.
The paper weavings started as a response to those suffering and dying from the Covid-19 pandemic. I cut strips of rice paper on which I wrote 20 invocations of the name of God from five major spiritual traditions. I wrote these invocations and tied them to a metal grid in my backyard day after day. I continue to do so. And more work is underway. There are thousands of strips. After weathering, the strips are removed, glued together and woven into a kind of elegy to those families affected by the virus.
