I Would Wear That
A self-absorbed study in non-functional weaving

Is that a scarf?
No, it’s a wall hanging.
It could be a scarf.
No, it is a wall hanging.
But it could be a scarf.

“I Would Wear That” is a collection of useless handwoven wall hangings. Their only function is to look nice. I wove with colors I like to wear. They belong on the wall, not in my laundry basket. I wish my closet looked like this.

Color-coordinated and pretty is good. Functionality is overrated.

The collection is composed of cut-up and reassembled tapestries stretched on ellipsoid forms. Some pieces are single canvases, while others are amalgams of smaller pieces. Store-bought velvet and metallic cloth peeks through stressed holes in the handweaving. Loose stuffing makes them bulge like blisters.

What season am I? Just look at the walls. Oh, yes, I would wear that.
