The Stripe paintings are part of large series of paintings that work with color and compostion. In my former life, I was Textile Design major in college. I loved textile design but I got a C- in this stripes & plaids rendering class. I just couldn’t get the stripes to be perfectly straight!
So this is my version. I love that my stripes have such terrific energy and personality. Straight lines are boring. The painting on top is really tactile…the image doesn’t give it justice.
I have a huge collection of striped grosgrain ribbon that gives me my inspiration. Go to a great ribbon shop on 38th street and 6th avenue in NYC. I can’t remember the name…it’s around the corner from M&J. Anyway, great shop that is filled with tons of striped ribbon.
So I am going to dig up some more stuff to amuse you. Let me know what you find inspring or fun?
