Study of Elements: AIR

Gloria Kirk-Hanna's avatar Gloria Kirk-Hanna

Gloria Kirk-Hanna uses no larger then 1/4 inch hand cut batik cottons, hand dyed rovings, yarns, and various other hand dyed fibers then stitches them together using heavy cotton thread. "In my work I try not to conform to the rules of weaving or quilting allowing me to push the medium to exciting new levels." Gloria states. The end results are fine art pieces, organic in nature, that play with shadow and light. Gloria has been working on a series exploring the four elements, and will display her interpretation of AIR at 2011 Art Prize. The 4.5 foot by 6 foot single piece will explore how air moves, shapes the world around us, and comforts us.
