Rubies! One of the most coveted precious gemstones, Rubies reminds us of the the Hollywood glamour years, the Ruby Red Slippers, all things red and hot. Miami Beach is always hot, with endless glamorous parties, flashy cars, and jewels. The excitement of Miami Beach, glitz and glam, luxe living, fast cars, is hot hot hot.
Rubies is one of 4 'Jewels' - a series of 4 conceptual, contemporary works of art I created to capture the energy of this tropical paradise in contemporary fiber art.
Strands of gold lurex, shimmery ruby red threads, and thinly sliced one-hundred-dollar-bills, US currency, and cellophane form filaments of light and color bursting like fireworks over an inky ocean.
Rubies! Hand woven, mixed media, contemporary, conceptual fiber art tapestry. The imagery is interwoven simultaneously with black linen yarns. All components are woven at the same time. Nothing is added. It is stretched and mounted,14" x 14", ready for your frame.
