My showing is called, “So Many Poppies, So Little Time”…
Like so many beautiful things in our lives, the life of a poppy blossom seems all too short. The flowers vibrate with color, knowing their time is limited, they stretch and reach for the light, they seem to hold their heads high. Advertising, “Look quickly, for I am a fleeting beauty”.
These poppy flowers surface from my imagination and are transferred to the silk fabric, using french dye pigments. The poppies shimmer and shine on the silk, expressing their delicate petals and bold color, creating an enduring beauty.
