Play of Light                                                    Almuth Palinkas

Moorman Technique (inlay)

Silk, cotton, metallic, mounted on linen ground

37 in H  x  34 in W

Statement:  The origin of this piece was one skein of hand-dyed silk yarn, which I purchased from the dyer.  I liked the skein just as it was, for itself.  To keep the colors as they were and to use them in a woven textile, I made the weaving the width of the skein and simply wove back and forth, row by row, until I had used it all.  The skein forms the bottom part of the textile.  The soft blending of the skein colors made me think of reflections in water.  This led to the choice of clear-edged shapes above the skein, the rectangles loosely repeating the color below.
