Lamentation for A Reasoned History, Garrison, 2021

This work is comprised entirely of donated vintage lace sent to The Lace Archive.

I hand-dye each piece multiple times with cochineal insect dye, before it is hand-sewn into the larger work. Added are ex-votos in plaster and paper clay. The work is site responsive and is adapted for different spaces.

materials: lace hand-dyed with cochineal insect-dyed, thread, paper clay, cast plaster.

current dimensions: 126" x 432" (approximate). Currently on view at 3S Artspace.
