Umbrella Work refers to the rural practice of stringing a hop garden ready for spring growth – literally creating space by drawing patterns through air with coir. This new drawing - layering paint and line – evokes a childhood moment of looking up through a strung hop garden and experiencing space as volume. The work brings memory to the present through pairing vintage carbon paper with contemporary Plexiglas; its circularity suggests coinage, a personal currency of mark-making.
