  • The connections to textile design and to painting are compelling. The design sense is fabulous. Great monumental show....very universal.

    — Sandra

  • This is very cool it looks like fabric

    — Laura

  • Fabric, I'm the best sense of the word! Even the standing basket/carriers seem woven in their paperness.
    That orderliness, the limitation of only warp and woof cannot limit the inventive of the people, the precious differences!

    — Kita

  • The art reminds me that we all are different but together we make up the cloth of humanity and together we are beautiful.

    — Anna

  • A connection I see is that all his works have a defenet pattern to them it looks like it could be completely random connections but apron closer examination you can see that the artist was trying to show some type of image, he wasn't just linking a bunch of garbage together the way some artists do.
