"Timothy's art is rooted in nature and magical storytelling that enables each viewer to see the expression of their own votive prayer."
What is yarn art?
Yarn paintings can be thought of as yarn mosaics.
Designed for centuries by the North American Native Huichol people, yarn paintings were originally votive prayer offerings, and have evolved into elaborate works of art depicting sacred stories and symbols.
Today, yarn paintings are created on wooden surfaces, coated with a smooth layer of wax. Guide lines for a design are carved into the surface, then yarn is pressed into the wax, starting with outlines and continuing until all spaces are filled in.
