This is the small tapestry I did for the September 11th Memorial Tapestry. As I revisit it today, I am seeing it as my first 'graffiti' tapestry! And, now that I think on it, I did another bit of woven graffiti, as well.
This tapestry was woven when I was totally exhausted, physically and emotionally, from a project I was doing.
It amuses me somewhat that, when I am emotionally charged, I turn to 'graffiti,' which is an immediate art form for expressing reactions and emotions 'Loudly' and quickly. But I must express it the only way I know how: in one of the slowest, most 'non-immediate' mediums, handwoven tapestry.
September 11th was an emotionally charged and exhausting experience for us all. I still have tears fill my eyes when I see this small tapestry, because I believe I truly wept through the entire process of creating it.
The large tapestry I am weaving now.... well, I'm sure you will see my emotions spill out from it when it is completed.
