This body of work utilizes pattern-based tapestry as a drawing medium to map the connection between Indigo (a living color) and water as a living entity. The woven wave-forms and seascapes are both real and imagined—the beating of the loom akin to the ebb/flow of the tides. In drafting weaving patterns, Vota creates her own waves and ripples, and this deep focus on pattern is akin to larger observations of the sun sparking off the water, or the moon reflecting its face. She juxtaposes the beautiful idealization of these images with the living reality of our polluted water systems.
