The fine art of fiber wall sculptures and hangings by Wendy Carpenter reveals her personal impressionist art style through borderline "abstract-literal" interpretations.
The "Ancestral paper" captures the emotion and power through abstracting the ancient Pueblo clothing from the Early Basketmaker ll Era (12 Century BCE). I saw an Anasazi clothing artifact in Utah and was inspired to recreate it through a paper medium.
The ash wood frame measures 2 feet wide, 3 long, 4 inches deep. The paper art form is constructed with a cotton pulp, applied pigment, and incorporated with hand weaved wool fabric.
