La Primavera

La Primavera : silk collage with beads and sequins

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.

Sometimes plans change especially when you have a very persuasive three year and eleven month old grand daughter who wants a ” pillow” doll for Christmas.
She discovered some fabric scraps left over from the silk collage “The Map is not the Territory” and picked out her favorite colors . She was very insistent about having buttons for the eyes.
