Intersections // This photo reminds me of the aerial view I see when I fly over Omaha, NE. The place I grew up. It looks like the cornfields intersecting the soybeans. It’s like when the snow lands and everything is pure white.

Nebraska is a main stage in my coming out experience. It’s where I began to blossom as a gay man. It’s where l found my start. But it’s also a place that is unforgiving and cold in many ways.

I’m just thinking a lot about the different intersections of my story. You have to have those painful bits. They just can’t be erased. But you have to acknowledge the joys tucked in there, too. Planted deep in the ground like soybeans. Whatever you nurture flourishes. I want to nurture those joyful moments.

Here it is, folks. The altar itself. After clambering around on the floor, shooing my cat away incessantly, and making just a general mess here it is. And it’s beautiful and perfect. I’m very excited to start stitching in my stories. —

Whenever I start a new piece of creative work a voice pops up in the back of my mind. It’s the voice of a professor of mine from undergrad. He told me once that my compositions were lackluster. That became debilitating to me. —
Composition is one of the first things you deal with in any work. So with that kind of doubt so early in my creative process I’m paralyzed. I’m convinced that my work will never be enough. —
But I realized with this composition that I’ve started and the works that I love of other people and the styles I’m drawn to, that my compositions are just right, for me. They give a sense of order. A sense of ritual. I believe that creative work is magic. And it’s about intentions being placed into a product. —
So here is my altar. This quilt is becoming so many more things than just a quilt about my bad coming out experiences. It’s a place to put the shame and guilt I’ve felt and it’s a place to celebrate the positives from my last decade of being out. That’s where the name comes from. I’m working thru this veil. The pain, my insecurity, and the fear. Those are all making this veil. I will break through. —

The Siddi are a community of people descended from Africans enslaved by the Portuguese and taken to India. I have been researching how they make their amazing Kawandi Quilts. There's not much out there on the Internet, but I had a go anyway based on a very short film I found about how they work on their quilts. #sırrı #quiltkawandi #henrydrewal #stitched #customart #artist #slowstich #slow

peaceful organic landscape of stiches...love how this piece turned out

Living art a collaberation with master weavers, delicate little caterpillars diving into golden silk threaded cocoon shape shifting first into yellow bonbon so that they may emerge with ethereal wings and fury features. Every moment savoured and sacred as they follow in the steps of generations upon generation only here we are breaking with silk conditioning tradition and are allowing all the moths an opportunity to emerge and complete life's cycle. Collaborating with moths is a sensitive undertaking and the symbology keeps me diving deeper. #ecoprinted #botanicaldye #leafprint #felt #paper #slowstiched #evolvingart #collaborateingwithnature#metamorphosis #workingasnature #feltpods#slowstich

Morning studio bliss 😌🌿✂️

I set out all the textiles and threads that I’m working with on my slow stitch quilt and it’s like a celebration of autumn on my desk 🍁🍂
Hope you’re all having a lovely Sunday!

Current mood 🛋 : Cypress in Moonlight by Edvard Munch
Saw it at the Met in NY and just fell more in love with his work ♥️
.
Mountains surrounding us are covered with fresh snow and the weather is shifting🗻 🌬
Which means that I have the perfect excuse (the main one being nursing my dog back to health) to stay in and stitch-dye-contemplate-stitch-etc. More on my quilt development in my stories ✂️💛
Stay warm friends 🍂🍁
