48" x 132" - 13 colors
Description: Handmade custom
fabricated Tapestry of the Buddha. Artwork
is based from this statue of Japanese origin (left).
Production: This piece was
a long time coming. The middle image is the template
and was pinned to the wall in my workshop for 4 years
before I started fabrication. Another 2 years would
pass before it was completed. I started with the crown
and worked my way down - it was a constant exercise
in patience. I focused on small sections then inset
into the main black field piece. It's a nesting process...
nesting colors within colors, nests within nests, small
sections into bigger sections - making up the whole.
