This is the third in a collection of chuppahs I'm making as an Artist-in-Residence at the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, at Brandeis University. It measures 8' x 8'. It's made with two 4' x 8' pieces of monoprinted, handstamped, and painted fabric, that will go together as one.
This is a Photoshopped photo of what it will look like. Because I didn't have a ladder tall enough to hang both 8'+ off the ground, I shot each section separately and put them together in this photo.
Before I install it, I plan on cutting many holes or flaps in the outer edges of it, which should have a nice effect, especially if it's installed overhead. I think it would be nice to see light coming through it from underneath.
Please note that the gray on the edges is the wall color, and is not a part of this piece.
Next week I hope to make 2 - 4 more chuppahs of various sizes and designs, in time to hang my exhibit the following week.
I am at Brandeis weekdays from noon - 5pm through April 11th working on site in the Kniznick Gallery. I'm creating a series of Jewish wedding canopies, or chuppot, to be displayed at an exhibition, Under Color, at the Kniznick Gallery from April 14 - May 22, 2014.
Please feel free to stop by while I'm working in the gallery, or during the exhibit, or both.
