Abstract or Summary

Rose and Thistle An elaborate carpet based on a William Morris design, and constructed entirely out of glitter. The glitter is not fixed and will be swept up at the end of the exhibition. This work draws on many references from sand mandalas, gay culture, and the annual Corpus Domini carpets created for a religious festival in Tuscany. The stenciled pattern was painstakingly constructed out of glitter, the remains of 3 previous carpets. ArtsPost 31 July - 25 August, 2008.
