DAY EIGHTEEN

picasso made Guernica in 33 days, and I am using his same timeline. he painted his piece, but I’m sewing mine on textbook papers with metallic gold thread to emphasize the fragility of where we find ourselves in this political landscape, holding it together or hanging by a thread.

pattern making for dr. blasey - ford figure

picasso said , “ i want my paintings to be able to defend themselves, to resist the invader, just as thought there were razor blades on all surfaces so no one could touch them without cutting his hands.”

in my case, i’m interested in the imagery being razor sharp at a distance, but the surface to be tactile, you could run your hand over the surface and feel the stitches and the texture of the paper. It’s tangible but one has to be close to see the intricacies and detail, much like our situation, it looks very different up close.
