Chie Hitchner

Montgomery, AL

My work currently focuses on the expression of movement on the canvas of a 2-dimensional tapestry. Each piece starts with the dying of raw Japanese silk using natural materials found primarily in the yard behind my workshop. I am inspired by nature -- namely the materials I work with and the daily changes in my environment -- and I take unfettered joy in challenging the limitations imposed by the two dimensions that I must work in. I use pattern, color and sheen to create a sense of movement on the otherwise inanimate cloth.
