Elemental Sewn Drawings

rebeccadidomenicoelement#54These drawings represent the elements. The marks or lines are sewn on paper, illustrating the continuous nature of the “drawn” line. The process of creating the pieces is a vital element of the experience. Even the frames themselves become a part of the visual exploration. The holes in each frame emphasize the role of empty space in the illumination of each element.; the air necessary to create fire, the gaps between water currents and the intervals between breaths. The threads move beyond the frame into a world outside the designated frame, so that the art unites with the viewer’s perceived space.
