“Seascapes are abstract views of sunsets and the relationship of the views above and below the horizon. They contain many symbols about the power and infinity of the sea.” – Priscilla

After Banded Crosses came Highlights. You can see that they are a similar design, but with extremely different colorways and many different design elements. You can also see that both were inspired by Interrupted Symmetry.

Enjoy!

After weaving Interrupted Symmetry, Rachel started playing around with “interrupting” tapestries with plain weave (stripes).

I remember my grandma always telling me about how she would be weaving a piece and during the process she would end up with a stack of potential design ideas. Every weaving/design would evolve on the loom and bits of each would inspire her next pieces. If you look at her work in sequence (by year) you can see this. One element from said piece would become the main design element of a following piece and so on, showing that “series” come in lots of shapes and forms.

This piece was woven the same year as Interrupted Symmetry, the first in this “series”.


Interrupted Symmetry by Rachel Brown, hand-dyed wool, 76.5″x41″, 1991

“For this weaving, I started out with a geometric form design and planned to do the whole weaving in a symmetrical way, where the top half was the same as the bottom half. But I got a little past one-third of the weaving and realized it was going to be too busy, so I decided to interrupt the design with horizontals. This was the first of my weavings were I interrupted the design with horizontals.” -Rachel Brown
