Dorothy Caldwell Silent Ice Deep Patience @ AGP 4

Flying Over Salt Lakes is the fifth and last of the family-of-five earth ochre textiles. The white ochre on black cloth resembles discharged fabric.

Dorothy combines fine and chunky stitching and couched lines to great effect. The stitching is exuberant, deeply sensitive, and intuitive.

The earth ochre textiles are a departure, as they are void of her usual screen-printed marks. They are all about line and texture. Dorothy's calm, quiet presence are embedded in these sensitive textiles.
