Custom order floorcloths in process
I’m often asked what is the difference between my floor cloths, wall hangings, and paintings. Often there is no difference other than the floor cloths can be used and the floor and mounted on the walls as well. I wanted an art form that could be easily used in homes and offices as well as traditional art settings. At the time nearly all the stretched canvas paintings I was doing were suited for museums and galleries primarily, they were large and sometimes related the art community. I wanted my artwork to also be ‘used’ utilitarian. Probably the primary difference in my paintings and floor cloths is the floor cloths were designed to be responsive to my clients, to the exact colors they wanted, forms, to have meaning to them personally, concurrently my particular style/expression. Lastly, I really wanted to collaborate with my clients, to have an exchange that would also come through the work.

This floorcloth ‘New Stripes’ will soon have a home of Judy Clements, in the kitchen/great room. Judy is an interesting woman who is involved in the arts and theatre in Atlanta. Her home is full of wonderful objects d’art from around the world, with a generous representation of Atlanta artists. She has what we artists call a good ‘eye’. Its difficult for me to concentrate on anything but the art, it keeps calling to me “look at me” “look at me”,”spend time here, here”. My floorcloth will be in good company. My friend Judi Knight, recently did her Kitchen Art Magic on Judy Clements kitchen, like a good symphony conductor, the kitchen works well with all its surrounding elements. Total fun and gratifying for me to do this piece. Continue reading
