This recent body of textile and sculptures continues Connet’s twenty year fascination with the process of the dye-resist technique of mokume shibori. Connet's new wall pieces approach a level cartographic exploration, reassembling the compositions into abrupt transitions between pattern and deep indigo fields.

In art as well as literature, the Chinese have traditionally imbued flowers, fruits, and woody grasses with rich and multilayered qualities that convey human ideas, values, and aspirations. These find expression in visual puns known as rebuses, in which botanical names call to mind homophones for blessings of good fortune, as well as in subtle allusions that endow a plant’s natural attr...   [more]
