Tapestry in New York State

I am on the final leg of my American research trip - I've made it to California and will be interviewing Harold Cohen on Monday. So many interesting thoughts and ideas have developed whilst I have been here - there will be plenty of blogging on my return!

In the meantime here are a couple of interesting pictures. I had the pleasure of meeting Archie Brennan and Susan Maffei at their home north of New York City. It was wonderful to see the space in which they work and to interview Archie for my thesis. Out of all the works I had an opportunity to see, my favourite was Partial Portrait Once Upon a Consumer. He wove it based on the combination of shirt, tie and jacket which he frequently wore, with two buttons forming the only 3 dimensional element.
