Below is a small segment of a scroll created for Unravel piece #2 for National Art Tag. It was influenced by Rosemary Meza desPlas' soft sculpture. Unfortunately I did not photograph it before I sent it back to her. Rosemary uses hair sewn onto canvas or fabric. That is what she did with her small sculpture. This piece was inspired by her use of hair and also the many letters I have kept from Jacqueline, who passed away years ago. I first free-sewed some red thread onto the delicate paper scroll (purchased from a wonderful stationery shop in Kyoto). Then I added the calligraphic drips and brush strokes. The letter was cut up and was used to affix the hair onto the scroll. Then more drips. I happened to have a cherry blossom punch so I cut some scrap red glassine paper. The scroll was rolled up and sent to Kelly Hammargren, my Tag partner this round. I hope she will unravel the scroll and enjoy the results.
