Below is a multi-media painting installation featuring a 12? x 6? painting on paper mounted on canvas, natural dyed sheer fabric and knotted-woven fibers, with an emerging canopy and a soft sculpture form on the ground. Materials used to create this work are heavyweight canvas, Stonehenge paper, cotton yarns, linen, cotton fabric, sticks, acrylic paint, as well as handmade inks and dyes made from acorns, leaves, coffee grounds, avocado stones, and river stones. This work is the continuation of Dear tree, may I spend a year with you?, which investigates a particular Eastern Hemlock tree residing along the Presumpscot River in Portland, ME. Jacome is working to create an installation that represents the interconnectedness of the ecosystem that exists under the forest floor. Through material, color, scale and spatial considerations she is transforming this invisible emotive landscape of felt connectivity into physical form through the combination of fiber arts and painting. Drawing in space and tapping into the atmosphere within this installation was her primary challenge as well as expressing the innate feelings of comfort and wonder.
