DESCRIPTION: "Emerge" is an example of an early work in which I was experimenting with rigid geometry expressed by less rigid shapes and loose patterns. The title is drawn from the small bone beads popping out through slashes in the brown appiqued squares. The inspiration behind both the geometry and these little "seeds" is the layout of a formal garden plot.
