Fiberart wall sculpture and tapestry hanging by Wendy Carpenter:
"Sun Rise Sculpture" depicts, through borderline abstract-literal interpretations, the sun's energy rolling across the mid-west farmland. It is created in an impressionist art style that captures nature's emotion and power by abstracting the natural world! It is handwoven using an inlay tapestry technique with 100% handspun wool yarn and measures 8' long by 3' wide with 8" depth.
My motivation to create "Mid-West Sun Rise" stems from my "Preserving Americana" series! This collection represents my abstract expression to honor our ancestors’ rural lifestyle and my memories of growing up on a farm in Bay Settlement during the 1960s.
