Paused, 2020, Finishing nails, cotton, polyester, and acrylic yarn, 30 x 30 in.
Paused is a miniature companion piece to the large woven sign depicted in Stop and Go. The work has been left incomplete, being both incompletely woven and unembellished. The piece exists as a reminder that incompleteness is not always a failure, rather an unavoidable force of nature much like a rip tide which cannot be avoided, but must be followed out before movement can be made again. The incompleteness of the STOP sign is itself an oddly poetic thing.
