People and The Things

The Medium: Watercolor and dye on cheesecloth, waxed linen thread

My installation consists of pieces of cheesecloth suspended from strands of thread. The installation occupies the width between two opposite walls which makes an interaction between the viewer and the work possible.
The installation synchronizes the fluidity of its space with the accumulation of color on its surfaces. The overlapping lengths of thread create complex contours of lines from which the soft masses of painted cheesecloths that dominate the space of the installation are suspended. The total effect of this layering of lines is a wavelike rhythm.
This installation is reminiscent of scenes of laundry hung out of doors that I have experienced since my childhood. I am affected by such scenes because they are themselves work of installation that are enacted everyday as part of our natural social ritual. Soaked in dyes of earth-brown color the once white waves have a worn look, wrinkled, soiled, muddied experience. The soil-brown colored cheesecloth represents the substance of a human being as well as the unstable way of hanging on lines depicts a form of being. The essence of being is debilitated by time and space within sameness.
My work involves putting art into a living context, thus expressing the harmony between nature and the everyday life of humans.
