Haiku I

 Haiku I became a study of sorts for a larger work (Haiku II) and launches a new series.  Both feature hand-dyed sheer silk fabrics over-layed with synthetic sheers, and machine stitched.  This allows for a fascinating interplay between colors, values, and repeating shapes.  Haiku I is more intense, and reminds me of a Rorschach test, if you had double vision.  The namesake poetry, and the dyeing technique, shibori, are both Japanese.

Of course, I had to write a haiku to celebrate this new series.

Haiku I

Two colors: red, black

Layered to affect the mood–

Simple yet complex.
