Standing in Strength II
Created by Jackie Abrams
Standing in Strength II represents who we are, our differences and similarities, and the strength we gather when we stand together. The materials used, pattern and tea bag papers, are materials that are not usually valued, but are connected to our daily lives. Standing in Strength II is part of the series, Imprints. The twined wire armatures provide stability and strength, creating a form that can be covered with a skin. This skin becomes a translucent surface which allows for the exploration of materials, layers, colors, and textures. The height given is for the tallest one on the left. The heights range from 4 to 9 inches.
