Accumulation is a tongue in cheek response to the age-old saying that “a rolling stone gathers no moss”. In contradiction, I believe our lives are a slow accumulation of experiences that impact and change us in incremental ways. Simple forms when multiplied become strong statements much like the cairns by the beach that personify balance and stability- We are shaped and strengthened by our experiences each and every day. In this body of work, I use collected silk and cotton sari fabric, manipulating them with dye and screen printing.
