Flotsam & Jetsam (b 2017) San Francisco, CA.
Flotsam & Jetsam is the everyday salvage series. These plastic bags, wraps, and packagings were once polyethylene just as threads were once fibers. After deconstructing the bags, I began weaving them back together to create a new canvas material.
Weaving has traditionally been a woman’s work, praising feminine inventiveness and resourcefulness, it connects women of the past, present, and future.
The repurposed unrecyclable refuse became the abstract painting of pixelated color fields with life on their own.
