Developed in residency at the studio of Jean Dubuffet, founder of Art Brut, Vence, France, 2019.

Drawing from Jean Dubuffet’s creative primitivism, off-cut wood, painted jute and a handspun yarn of self-harvest kapok cotton and merino wool were used to create these abstract forms which were composed in response to the flora and fauna of beautiful Southern France.

Though geometric in shape, naturely forms come to mind as one gazes upon the abstract assemblages. The textile articulation has a painterly quality that takes reference from Dubuffet’s free, expressive rendering and playful approach.
