Ingrid – Beautiful

Ingrid - Her voice from the past is revealed through the layers of Forensic Reconstruction.

She is 41-47 years old and was found at the excavation 'Hole in the Market' in Vlaardingen , Holland. She died approximately 1100 years ago. The goal of reconstruction is to take a skull of an unknown person and recreate the face so that the person can be identified. So many times, people are lost and their bones are discovered under suspicious circumstances or maybe found after thousands of years. By using the reconstruction process, their musculature is recreated and it is possible to discover what they looked like and who they are after the final touches to the skull. This sculpture shows the beginning and the end of the process in another form of art – thread painting. I have applied over seventy colors of thread to the sculpture, bringing her to life. The blending of the colors is integral to the process.

This art is framed with a fabric matte. The quilt has exposed raw edges, allowing the viewer to see the layers of the quilt. The ragged edges echo the passage of the years since Ingrid passed away. Ingrid is now alive through this thread painting for all to see.

On October 4th, a category 4 storm landed in Haiti displacing 1.4 million people in the worst disaster since the 2010 earthquake. Among those effected by Hurricane Matthew are many of the artisans we have worked with through the Artisan Business Network (ABN). ABN has worked extensively in Haiti since 2009 with a wide range of artisans living particularly in Jeremie, Les Cayes, Leogane, an Camp Perrin. 90% of their members have lost their homes and workspace due to the storm. Your support will make a difference in their lives.
