 “Remembering the Burned House”
46”H x 24”W  

Inspired by the Margaret Poem, “Morning in the Burned House.”

The opening lines of the poem are:

In the burned house I am eating breakfast.

You understand: there is no house, there is no breakfast,

Yet here I am.

My purpose in creating this work is to capture the emotion of a memory…  portraying what is not there. A place that exists and does not. Ambiguity and dream-like memory.  I love Ms. Atwood’s poem and hope to do justice to the powerful images it creates.

The work is created with archival acrylic paints and mediums on fabric. Beginning with blank muslin I created the images on fabric through a variety of surface design techniques: monotype printing, stencils, wheat paste resist, hand painting and drawing. The window is an original photo transfer to muslin. The composition is constructed as a collage with machine stitching for texture and protected with acrylic medium.

Finishing: Fabric bound with a eco-felt fabric backing. The back has a hanging pocket and a rod, for traditional hanging tapestry presentation.

This work was created for an exhibit of literature-inspired textile artworks to hang it City Hall, DeLand, Florida October – December, 2019. It is available for shipment at the conclusion of the exhibit.
