Creation of ten luxurious silk charmeuse shawls, 90” x 36”. Printed upon the lining will be images from my personal collection of cherished and intimate hand written notes from family, friends, husbands and lovers – notes from childhood to the present. These storytelling shawls are the history of generous and generative personal relationships.
Creation of three full-length silk kimono styled coats with scanned images of six generations of family photos and correspondence on the lining of the elegant garments. Living genealogy of my family’s history from enslavement to self-determination.
Intimate conversations on the varieties of personal mystical experiences. Our conversations explore how these experiences evolved our knowledge of our sacred and magical selves and evolved our knowledge of the spiritual and material realities.
