Cycle

Cycle

Freemotion machine embroidery and alcohol ink on canvas

12x12 inches.

 

The skull image was burned into my mind on a trip to the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia surrounded by skeletons of people who once lived, staring back at me in the present.   As I was creating it I thought about cycles of all kinds.

 

The cycle of death and rebirth.  The cycles of the seasons. The cycle of the moon.  Our bodily cycles.

 

There is a time for everything.  A time for joy and a time for sadness.  A time for life and a time for death.  A time for rest and a time for action.

 

This piece is a reminder to honor those times, even the lows, in order to appreciate and fully experience the highs.

 

This piece has a tremenoud amount of sewn detail..  All of the shading of the skull, moons, and color wheel are entirely done with thread.  In making it, I allowed myself to honor times of play and exploration and I hope that energy is transfered to you.  

 

This piece is also available as a print through Fine Art America
