Breastplate – Framed


The feathers in Breastplate are cut into curved forms that echo the shape of feathers. This piece is built in layers and resembles a large version of a breastplate that is worn for protection or decoration. Wrapped sticks have appeared in my work for many years and in this piece they define the top edge of the piece. The feathers are made from recycled plastic, hand screen printed with images of endangered birds and overprinted with text in endangered languages such as Yiddish, Shorthand, numerous indigenous languages and excerpts of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring in Spanish and English.

Framed Size: 32 x 48 x 4″

Materials: hand screen-printing on recycled plastic, hand and machine sewing, wrapping, sisal, waxed linen thread
