Memory XI, the latest work from the Memory series, is finished. The piece is 36in X 24in unframed. Like all the works in this group, Memory XI was created by spraying acrylic paint through found vintage and antique crochet doilies and over solid circular doilies I crocheted myself and repurposed from a graduate school project. After the paint application, I go back into the work and stitch through and crochet on top of the paper substrate with found fibers.
A selection of works from the Stains and Memory series are included in an upcycle themed group show and are now on display at Carnegie-Stout Public Library in Dubuque.
The show runs until May 21, 2021.
