Artist: Patricia Rhees, Serenity’s Door
Medium: Silk Fiber Fusion
The artist uses fibers from beautifully hand dyed silk roving which are then placed and fused.
The silk fibers are strong, durable and, best of all, beautifully shimmery, catching and reflecting light from both natural and manmade sources.
The artist uses the beauty of nature and a love of color to inspire timeless designs that float within the frame.
The labyrinth, a design originating in Greek and medieval times, is a favorite of the artist. Many silk pieces have a labyrinth laser cut into the fusion. Labyrinths have only one path in and out. Walking a labyrinth is a soothing form of mindfulness, meditation and prayer.
