I have a new series underway called Words for Our Times that has grown out of the current situation in this country. I made this over the last two days. The lettering is far from perfect but it adds a sense of urgency and reflects the rawness I feel. It is made from one sheet of paper from Chino Crafts in Nepal that was torn, lettered, and then reassembled with stitching. There are quotes from Michelle Obama, Mark Twain, Eleanor Roosevelt, J.R.R. Tolkien, Martin Luther King Jr., C.S. Lewis, Robert Green Ingersoll, and Jane Austen.
I have six words definitely chosen and several more under consideration. I also have to figure out how they will hang. This one is temporarily held up with masking tape. I will be looking for places to display them, preferably non-gallery settings with public access, in windows (the light accentuates the texture of the paper and the stitching), and for short periods of time. Any thoughts you have would be most welcome.
