Suspended Hearts

Rip/Rap  Ball ... ..   .....   the ripped muslin was reused from a sculptural backdrop which lived in my living room for several years.  When I took it down, I wrapped and coiled it into some marvelous balls ... . then took them apart and started ripping them into strips.  It was great fun wrapping these balls and the backgrounds for the other pieces :  I found the repetitive motion to be a bit like knitting.  We'll see what else comes of my little Christo Rip and Wrap  ..... ...... ....

Very interesting. It reminds me of a paper wasp nest or a hornets nest.

LOL!! 'Christo Rip and Wrap' — could be a new technique that will sweep the art blogosphere.

Hey, my 3-foot tall glass vase needs a load of Christo Rip and Wraps!

Yep, great coining of a new pharse that will take over: Rip and Wrap! I love the muslin ball too; the whole thing is just amazing how simple things can bring such pleasure to the senses.
