Joanne Weis “Clean Fresh Water” (detail 1)

Hemp – hand dyed, printed, appliquéd, stitched, computer generated text. As a textile artist, I start with white or natural fabric then add layer upon layer – immersion dyeing, hand printing, hand stitching, appliqué, and other embellishments. Much of my recent work focuses on social justice issues embedded in our abuse of the earth’s environment. Fresh clean water is essential to everyone, everywhere, indispensable for human life, health care, agriculture and aquatic networks. $390
