Some paths have no shortcuts. This piece is reconstructed from sections of an experimental work. It is primarily hand painted silk stitched with perle cotton, some of which was dyed with indigo in Japan. The design and the technique of handwork both illustrate that no shortcuts have been taken in creating this work.
