Project Collaboration

I recently partnered with my friend and photographer Maranda Loughlin to build a few frames for some prints
from her own collection. Maranda chose photos that are a very effortless extension of The Green House's offerings using
heavy earth tones and scenes from nature. Maranda has an incredible eye for detail, as you can see in the following photos.

Fiber

I created a few hanging fiber pieces for the project using repurposed canvas I collected from painter friends.
I vat dyed a few of the canvas pieces and incorporated minimal stitching to accentuate
the dye pattern. Other pieces I soaked in cold salt water and applied the dye directly, allowing the movement
of the water and natural wrinkles in the fabric to dictate pattern and color intensity.

Words from Maranda

"My Canon AE-1 has been the tagalong on hikes, I-35 drives and cross-country road trips. It has
harbored a place on my hip during grocery store runs and Summer barbecues. And sometimes
it’s pulling me over to the side of the road for a quick wink. 
These photographs are a little tardy. They come from a place of slowing down: finding the shot,
developing the film and then printing the photo. It isn’t instant. This is a collection of photographs
that focuses on tokens found in nature without the worry of time. 
The Green House has been in my lens often this past year. There is a unmistakeable appreciation
for the natural world and the art of bringing it into a home when observing Christina Mainelli’s craftwork.
These banner posters are a collaboration between the two of us that seek to bring
the outdoors inside. I hope you enjoy!"
