Description: 

This large textile work exhibits a blossoming geometric pattern executed with vibrant woven yarn. Large fields of hot pink alternates with yellow and green borders that surround the repeated geometric design. The design and illumination of color work together to create an effect similar to a stained-glass window. Up close, thin black lines that separate colors within the pattern imitate the sautered lines of stained glass designs. The anticipated smoothness of the piece is pleasantly offset by the texture of the yarn itself, woven in and out of a clear plastic grid beneath.
