My new silk collage is called Schism.

Schism as defined by the pocket Oxford dictionary : n. a division of a group ( esp. religious) into sects etc.,usu. over doctrine

Perhaps I should use the word schismatic adj. & n. (from Greek skihizo to split) as this describes the piece better.

I am working with the idea of splitting and tearing : definition tear v. To pull apart or to pieces with some force and tear n. a drop of clear salty liquid secreted by glands from the eye, and shed esp. in grief.
