Complex weave structures offer seemingly infinite possibilities for design and expression in cloth. Janet Bealer's work explores these structures and the patterns and imagery that can be expressed using them, guided by the artist's particular sensibilities for color, line, texture, materials and craftsmanship. Computer drafting programs have liberated the design process, making it easier to try variations and make adjustments in a pattern or design. The process makes for a fascinating journey that often results in a series of designs, each building on the one preceding it or perhaps combining elements from different explorations.
