Hanging By A Thread

In my tissue paper color studies, the material was so lightweight that I started hanging them by a thread, on a pin in the wall. I continued this method with these board mounted, paper images, and at some point, began to hang them over two nails, forming a rectangular line shape above the image. Soon after, I realized I could make more inventive shapes by using 3, 4 or even more nails. Those nails, which extend ¾” from the wall, and their shadows enhance the dimensionality of these structures, making them more object-like. Additionally, these “line-thread” patterns could be made in relationship to the image they were holding.
