By laying a grid over my 25" square drawings, I was able to size them up onto my studio walls. Four new pieces (each 90" square)are outlined with narrow strips of cloth and stretch around the room. It's wonderful to contemplate what they will eventually look like.
The circle represents sacredness, as it is the most natural shape. The circle represents wholeness, eternity, perfection and timelessness. The circle represents the sphere of heaven.
The square represents earth. The square represents honesty, morality, limitation and enclosure. In sacred architecture it symbolizes knowledge.
A circle in a square brings heaven down to earth.
A circle in a square represents the church.
I want to make it clear that the four large square pieces, while inspired by my coursework for JC school of textiles, are not part of the university degree. They are my own body of work.
I also want to mention that this "design board" way of working is NOT my usual way, but so far I LIKE it. It's an adventure.
