'Just Faces'
 
This series of tapestries and drawings was first exhibited in the solo exhibition 'Just Faces' at Salamander Gallery, Arts Centre, Christchurch in February, 1997. The exhibition consisted of a number of tapestries woven from collage design concepts of my sister Mary's face. The works are all black and white with a small amount of red.

''Spirit of Woman''
1996
167 x 98cm
This tapestry in black, white and red portrays a multiple image of one woman's face. The design was created through photocopyint a photoppy image many times to reduce the image to its most simple form. This image was then torn and fragmented into the final collage design. The textural qualities of the tapestry were achieved through two different setts of 10epi (ends per inch) and 5epi. The strong contrasts of the black and white with just a little red in the grid makes a powerful statement whilst the wistful and somewhat sad expressions on the woman's face conveys something of the enigma of being a woman. This tapestry was stolen from it's wall in The Arts Centre of Christchurch about five or six years ago.
