Fiber: Twenty Ten

Ananas Comosus c2010 by Patricia Vivod was accepted into Fiber: Twenty Ten.

Missouri Fiber Artists (MoFA) is cosponsoring this national juried show with The Foundry Art Centre in St. Charles, Missouri.  The exhibition, which was juried from over 300 entries by Kay Khan of Santa Fe, New Mexico, will open MoFA's 2010 conference on Friday, April 16, 6-9 pm.  The weekend will be filled with a number of workshops and Khan will be the keynote speaker at a brunch on Sunday.  I am really thrilled to have a piece selected for this show.  I'll be attending both the opening and the brunch and am looking forward to meeting many other fiber artists. 

Ananas Comosus is a shibori rust piece.  A long piece of silk was pleated and wrapped around a long pipe and tied in place.  As always when I do shibori, I relish the surprise when unfolding the silk the next day to see the resulting shapes and marks imprinted on the fabric.  The rust penetrates the pleated fabric easily and the silk is very receptive to the color.  The mirror image patterns reveal all sorts of little creatures.  A detail appears at the bottom of the page.
