Noli Me Tangere (18"x26") & Noli Me Tangere 2 (26"x28")
2015, Embroidered fabric.
Begun before my grandmother's passing, Noli Me Tangere was formed using a sketch made after passing by her doorway one night, seeing her sitting up in bed, illuminated by a plug-in nightlight. This first of the tapestry pair focuses on the daily repetition of a personality. Noli Me Tangere 2 was begun after my grandmother's passing, and focuses more heavily on memory of the physicality of a face versus the more abstracted expression of a personality present in Noli Me Tangere.
