Invocations

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 mulberry 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.

As I was writing the slips on top of paper, I noted that the ink bled through the mulberry paper. Using that technique, I created the series of ink and water color pieces. I combined the prayer slips and the writing technique for "In The Beginning."
