Electric Iris Iris 6: Electric Iris

Wool warp, hand-dyed wool weft
16  by 21 inches

The colors in this tapestry were inspired by the music and paintings of Miles Davis. The wedgeweave technique makes for a rather abstract iris plant, but I see the fountaining of the leaves as tracing the subtle energies of their growth, with the speckled black shapes of the blossoms spreading still pools in the busyness.
