Dear Americans is part of a series of embroidered and woven letters that speak about current concerns with the global environment, U.S. economy, and social class structures. Dear Americans, It's Time, 2017, utlizes metallic thread and faux hair (10 x 14 IN) and was included in A Thread of Execution, at Dimensions Variable in Miami (Photo is courtesy of Francesco Casale). Dear America, America My Dear was completed during the 2016 election. The artist wove while watching the debates, a methodical process that was both helpful and reflective. Points of slow reflection are needed in American culture.
