Scorched Vestments

Allison Svoboda's avatar Allison Svoboda

Installation of large scale cut and burnt pieces. These piece were created in response to a 6 month fellowship I received from Hemera Foundation to study Zen and traditional craft in Japan. The drawings are created solely by incense sticks in patterns from nature. The fractal patterns are from threatened flora and fauna such as the monarch butterfly, bees and coral.
