Family Portrait, 2009

Double-weave with discontinuous weft

21" x 29"


This representational work shows my sister Carol, brother Harry, and me superimposed on our parents' (Helen and Keith Goldhammer) wedding picture.  The age disparity is emphasized by showing my parents at a younger age in grayscale while presenting us children at an older age in full color.  I wove this for my mother.  Symbolic roses are positioned in the border corners. 

This weaving hangs in Helen Goldhammer's home in Portland, Oregon.
