Tallit for Howard M
Catalog number: 2014-0005
DESCRIPTION: The marks on this wedding tallit commissioned by Howard Menaker reference some of the woven patterning in traditional tallits, but expand the pattern within the same basic linear vocabulary to include sweeping, branching gestural marks. My own faith tradition is not Judaism, so this project gave me a great opportunity to learn about the tallit, including how to tie tzitzit.
MATERIALS: Silk noil
MEDIA: Fabric paint
TECHNIQUES: Direct application of dye/paint
