Strata VII is completed, mounted, photographed, and ready to go into its frame! That's five "Strata" and two "In Boxes" for the solo exhibition at Francis Marion University. I'm halfway there!
I left a few areas as "holes". Into these voids I hand stitched spider webs and also added big, bulky French knots for additional texture. I'm quite pleased with this one.
Today, I also took my book, Nails in a Coffin, 1861-1865, out from under the weights. I'm always nervous about this part of book construction...worried that I've missing some detail or that I didn't align all the stack of signatures up correctly on the end papers. Fortunately, nothing went wrong. I photographed all the pages today and will hopefully soon have a video to share.
