Please Help Your Little Brother

From an ongoing series of textural pieces using cotton fibers. These fibers are embedded with various layers of paint on the top of two pieces of vinyl. Using sheers I then cut and weave the two pieces of vinyl together on a birch panel. More coats of paint are then applied and the piece is sanded. The cotton fibers bring out a relief not seen in other woven pieces. 

As I was sanding this piece the title came to me. I liken the fibers to veins that reach out and wrap around a family unit. The color ways work as different scenarios and situations in which assistance is needed. As a side note, I have three older sisters :7)
