WOMEN OF S'FARAD (I)
– Black Lace and Gates
Wrought iron gates and lace clothing are barriers with the quality of a transparent veil: one can appear seducing and/or rejecting, observing and/or hiding. These artisan techniques are decorative and ornamental with sharp contrasts between the material (most often mono-chromatic) and open spaces.
Two contrasting colors within each tapestry give the series an electric but balanced feel, and each tapestry contains a sense of both tension and release.
