JULY 2017 – LIS KORSGREN
” Morning Haze”, (2017, 220 x 167 cm).
I found this scenery in Porto, Portugal, and was attracted by the bridge and the fishing boats coming back from sea in the morning haze. The rising sun meeting the morning haze created a symphony of amazing colors. Bridges are often beautiful pieces of construction surrounded by sky and water created to connect people. They’re regularly used as metaphors for important matters in our lives and in our history.
I weave in the tradition and technique developed and generously shared by Tapestry Artist Helena Hernmarck .
The tapestry “Morning Haze” can be seen at Washington Depot Arts Alliance Gallery, Connecticut, USA, August 12 to September 9, 2017.
