Artist Statement: 

Indra’s Net explores the interconnected whole, the vast entangled web all living and non-living things are part of. The woven language of textiles, in which nets, meshes and webs are created, provides both a visual and physical means for exploring ideas of interconnection. I have used the Buddhist metaphor for the interconnection between all things—Indra’s Net—as a visual reference point for my own investigations. Indra’s Net is an infinite net in which a multi-faceted jewel is hung at each node, each jewel reflecting all the others in the net. Tibetan Buddhism teacher and master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche writes, “since the net itself, the number of jewels, and the facets of every jewel are infinite, the number of reflections is infinite as well.”

Web explores the interconnected whole, the vast entangled web all living and non-living things are part of. The woven language of textiles, in which nets, meshes and webs are created, provides both a visual and physical means for exploring ideas of interconnection.

At a personal level my mind roams free while my hands are busy weaving. The wire is very fine and many, many repeated movements made this work. The small, repeated actions create a calming effect as they slowly build into the whole.
