Blank Canvas is a conceptual piece addressing the proverbial blank canvas that every artist must address. For this work, first installed at Mary Baldwin College, I created the shapes using an actual blank canvas. Then I removed the canvas leaving only air in its space. The emptiness of these canvases further emphasizes the point. The ethereal nature of this work allows one to see right through the “canvas”. In addition, I embroidered text on these “canvases” which cast delicate shadows that further assert their meaning.
