Old Dye Works

Along with my partner Jay Ressler, I have started visiting towns in Berks County for artistic inspiration. This piece represents an old dye works in Shoemakersville. It turns out Jay’s grandmother worked at an knitting factory across the street years ago. I was interested in the textures of the brick work, and had great fun with them, using piecework, embroidery and found objects. I also tried a direct dye method using a silk screen for the trees at river bank in the background.
