Stitch Work #1
Debra Weiss has a very special sense of intuitive picture making. She draws upon her background in textiles and years of macrame work when making her wonderful collaged fabric works. Carefully selected fabrics from Debra's extensive collection of silks and vintage scarves are layered one upon another. The fabrics are then hand stitched together over weeks and sometimes months. The backs are as beautiful as the fronts. Macrame detailing is added like lace work. Each stitching is one of a kind and they are meant to be showcased on a wall, like a drawing or painting.
