Notes on this piece…

This was another tapestry that was a derivative of the Hidden Symmetry tapestries and their forms. The curved forms that I came up with reminded me of Northwest coast Indian designs, which I realized are forms that are similar to natural scenes in the environment. There are some smooth rounded curves, which is the way the snow forms in the arctic.” -Rachel Brown

Enjoy!
