“Sage” is part of a textile-portrait series I began in 2019. “Sage” developed improvisationally and as it developed I saw that it took on personality traits such as wisdom and age, along with a quirkiness that made me smile. In that sense, “Sage” could be a self-portrait.
My hope is that you will be drawn to look closer and even have a conversation with “Sage” as I had when creating it. Mostly, I hope you smile.
