Art in Service of Art
There is nothing better than being able to use your creativity to the benefit of others. Recently, I was invited to support the fundraising effort of the local chamber ensemble, Cappella Romana, an extraordinary group dedicated to the musical traditions of the early Christian periods. Attending one of their concerts is as near to time-traveling as I can imagine; the ancient becomes accessible allowing me to hear and feel and be touched by the same sounds that countless others down through the centuries have also heard. In listening, time collapses making it easy to imagine Empress Theodora surrounded by the same ancient sounds within cavernous space of the great church in Constantinople.
A Taste of Byzantium, the Sounds of Hagia Sophia will take place November 3rd at the University Club in Portland, Oregon. A signed 12″ x 14″ giclee print of my fabric mosaic, Empress Theodora, will be available at auction. The print was produced by Digicraft with Better Light scanning system and printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper with Epson Ultrachrome archival ink. To help patrons more fully realize the nature of the fabric medium, I wrote a brief description, stitched together a sampling of fabrics used in the original piece and also created a small example of fabric fused to muslin and business cards with Theodora’s image were created to reflect the theme of the evening.
After considerable thought I finally settled on a design to provide a finished border for my fabric mosaic of Theodora. It seemed fitting that Theodora, a symbol of the power and glory of western civilization , should be framed within the softly scalloped edges of eastern arches. This is meant to point to the exotic and complex blend of western and eastern influences which shaped the Byzantine Empire.
For a close-up view of the work, you can view Theodora on RemnantWorksYoutube.
