Francois Vase Tapestry
In utilizing the unique ability to create transparency and layering with the silkscreen medium, my desire was to make something that feels connected to multiple periods of time–the past and the present. The narrative layer is derived from the mythological scenes depicted on the titular "Francois Vase", an ancient Greek vessel with special significance.
