Notes

This work was the final large piece from the body of work Depth Perception. It is woven in a weave structure called “shadow weave”, in natural off-white cotton, the pattern only emerges upon closeup inspection. It was woven as an antidote, a calm moment, after a strong focus on colour and saturation in its companion pieces. There are subtle moments of colour woven through, and they in turn allow for a moment of rest for the eye.
