cotton, polyester, fiberglass, photography. From the artist: "The five works in the series “It Had To Be You” are extensions of the artist’s interest in finding potential in extraordinary old textiles that once had significance in the lives of other people at other times. Chinese tapestry fragments are DNA for a new generation - genome imbedded in new life. As photographic enlargements of old silk fragments, they enter the works as portable objects on shelves, sitting within the body of each new piece that they generated. The series is made entirely of materials mass produced today in China, and readily available throughout the world."
