RW x SJ: Healed
A Rebecca Whitaker x Jitana Collaboration.
Rebecca's Description: I've often found inspiration from the earth, particularly in the layers of sediment and stone that expose themselves most often in the mountains. The earth has taught me valuable lessons about building on the past without shame and without fear. The earth doesn't hide her history, yet she doesn't let it solely define her either. This work of fiber art is about the healing that takes place when we accept who we are, layers, cracks, blemishes and all. There is power in owning our past rather than running from it. Acknowledging the broken pieces that make us who we are is what enables us to move forward and finally feel whole. Your history, no matter how seemingly tainted, is simply a layering in your soul that adds to the beauty of your final identity.
Materials include merino wool roving, cotton, and alpaca fleece.
