Cropped Circle Series
Cropped Circles: Segmented Fields
52″W x 57″H
Fascination with the mysteriously appearing crop circles led to thoughts of farmers’ ordinary crop circles. From the sky, one can see new crop circles overlapping disused circles; and all this integrated with straight furrows, agriculturally unuseable slopes, train tracks, roads and rivers. Hand-dyed and commercial cottons, pieced, appliqued and surface textured with stitching and cording. An original design. First in the Cropped Circles series.
