Life is a dream

In 2005, I had a solo exhibition at NCAR's Mesa Laboratory designed by I.M. Pei.
Life is a Dream, 2005 by Suzanne Coley 
Called the master of modern architecture, I.M. Pei studied under Bauhaus designers Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer.  Mesa Laboratory sits on the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, making it one of the most amazing spaces I have ever exhibited.

Life is a dream was one of twenty-five images I created for the exhibition.  It was the perfect place for science and art.

There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.

52 Weeks of Printmaking on Textiles: Week 9

Vintage Velvet, Embroidery & Silkscreens This week's book See Us is about bringing to light that which has been in the dark.
See Us,  is also the title of the main poem in the book.  I silkscreened the poem on the textile page.  When the text was dry, I hand embroidered glass beads to the page.
To further the motif of "see us" I printed many of the images with a pale ink on the dark velvet.  This created haunting, ghost-like imagery. The finished book: The poetic interweaving of rare African textiles, modern fibers, original imagery, and poetry.
