sustainable mixed-media mixed-media installation conceptual


My background is the insistent hum of a sewing machine in the evenings long ago as I played in the basement at my mother’s feet.  

the oozing color and textural joy of paint.  

the view of the world through a small window made big and flat.  

the transformation of an image on a metal plate etched by acid revealed with the darkness of ink and the lightness of fiber.  

the tacit harmony of working with my hands as colors and natural fibers evolve, and the fabric of a piece becomes whole.  

Creating art is an expression of self.  soul searching.  re centering.  re examining.  unlocking the layers of truth within.  a reflected journey I share with others.

Elaine Gin Louie, 2012
