Steve Donegan: Orange Hosta
"My process entails using multiple layers of images from photography, drawing and painting that are redrawn and converted into a digital file to interface with a computerized Jacquard loom. There is a distinct thing about a woven surface and the way light travels over it articulates its texture which adds something to my idea of landscape.
... the woods, folders and shoeboxes of minerals have been replaced with a spectacular garden where I focus all of my attention. My tapestries are the product of effort to capture all of my simultaneous reactions to it; the whirl from that input, its possibilities, and the craving of it."
