9 Days & a Sneak Peek

With Contact 2016 opening only 9 days away Michelle and I are stitching our art installation together as quickly as possible. 

Michelle has sent a sneak peek at her part in our project:

  
Her stitch work tells the story of the kāhuli, Hawaiian Tree Snails, and their populations here. 

No, the kāhuli do not hang out in the Philodendron vines which I am creating for our combined art installation. My vines represent the current incompatibility of human influx and intervention upon the ecosystem in Hawai’i. The Philodendron is considered a non-native, invasive plant.

http://studiodeanna.com Welcome! I’m Deanna, a metals & fiber artist creating sculptures and wall art installations. My work is very tactile, 2D & 3D textiles and often takes organic forms inspired by our natural planet. My international experiences have provided the opportunity to swim in the gorgeous tropical waters around Hawai’i, hiking in the rainforests of Far North Queensland, and the breathtaking beauty in Africa. Utilizing my custom-made steel tools, my favorite pieces to create are large-gauge wire crochet sculptures. My meticulously handcrafted designs will enrich your office, home, and outdoor living spaces. Currently I am dividing my time between the Tokyo Bay Area and Hawai’i and am open for commission art works.
