nature groups and assembles
nature dismantles materials in the right way
the wind bears things away
water currents carry them along and sort them into categories
light is strained and filtered through clouds, foliage, blades of grass
these events surround us
morning till evening, season to season
always imperceptibly changing
Agneta Hobin (Finland)

I replaced the greens that deteriorated with flesh tones in my cloud cloth.
I used a flesh colour because this show is, after all, about the body and its healing.
apologize to your body. maybe that's where the healing begins.

I always wash my work to embed the stitches. It's part of my proces.
I washed it in hot water in full cycle - and it came clean but things fell apart. Also some bleeding from the 9 dots in the center. So, I washed it again. Warm water full cycle - and it came cleaner yet but the velvet frayed out of the reverse applique holes.
That green silk velvet is a gift from Connie. It was the skirt of a Christmas bridesmaid dress she had made for her daughter. Connie is very frail these days. I am mending it today by replacing that old velvet.
Can't help but think that this is another metaphor.

rather the dark glamour of time and its relentless attrition
like scar tissue
full of liminal moments
full of secrets
