Bauhaus Weaving Series #3

"My Bauhaus Weaving Series hints at, incorporates, and features weaving as a focal design element. This collection of works began serendipitously – I had woven some of the cropped paper edges from an earlier project and then affixed the woven elements to loosely painted backgrounds to create a couple of new pieces. Because of the woven aspects on these works, I was reminded of the precise, yet sometimes unpredictable colorful rug patterns created by the group of women weavers who were part of the early 20th century Bauhaus Art School and the Bauhaus Art movement. Loosely using the Bauhaus rug weavings as a launching point for my series, I wanted to further explore, develop, and convey the notion of the weaving process. I used a variety of processes and materials to create a sense of loose tension and bold movement through the overlap and interplay of the woven “warp and weft” of the designs. On a personal note, my family tree has its original ancestral roots in Germany, which is where the Bauhaus Art School and movement sprang up a bit over a century ago. . . I feel like I’m paying my respects and giving a playful nod of recognition to the departed creative friends and relatives of my own unknown ancestors of long ago."
