I love this rug - composition , colour, but it is very disturbing with the crow walking around with the ballerina's head.
Hi Dan....yes..this rug was a bit different for me. It was made for a NSDCC show titled "Change Ahead" which will happen in Sept. 2013. For the show I am going to have a "Dress" rug and a Headless Ballerina " Rug and this one. I was into making dress rugs in 2007, then "Headlass Ballerinas later and now I am into crows...and women hanging objects on the clothesline...so this rug was just to show where I am "at" now...a gallery owner once asked why I was into "headless ballerinas" and the real answer was.....I wasn't confident enough to tackle faces at the time but I felt embarrassed to tell her that so a friend gave me another explanation which sounded more "artsy" ..ha! Anyways...in the rug, I still didn't want to reveal the real reason I was into "headless ballerinas" so the crow took care of it for me. ..and you, are right, it is disturbing..I have a bit of a black sense of humoour.
