And THAT is why you shouldn’t hang ballerinas from the clothesline.

This rug was made for the NSDCC show at the Mary Black Gallery in Halifax in September…there is a bit of a story to this so please go to the show, if you can, to read all about it.

    I love this rug – composition , colour, but it is very disturbing with the crow walking around with the ballerina's head.

    Hi Dan….yes..this rug was a bit different for me. It was made for a NSDCC show titled "Change Ahead" which will happen in Sept. 2013. For the show I am going to have a "Dress" rug and a Headless Ballerina " Rug and this one. I was into making dress rugs in 2007, then "Headlass Ballerinas later and now I am into crows…and women hanging objects on the clothesline…so this rug was just to show where I am "at" now…a gallery owner once asked why I was into "headless ballerinas" and the real answer was…..I wasn't confident enough to tackle faces at the time but I felt embarrassed to tell her that so a friend gave me another explanation which sounded more "artsy" ..ha! Anyways…in the rug, I still didn't want to reveal the real reason I was into "headless ballerinas" so the crow took care of it for me. ..and you, are right, it is disturbing..I have a bit of a black sense of humoour.
