Helena Hernmarck: Shadow and Light

Jack’s Cube, 1992. Wool, linen, cotton. 17.25 in. x 16.5 in.. Collection of Jack Lenor Larsen of LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton, NY

—————-

“This piece is very small, and it was made for textile designer, writer, and curator Jack Lenor Larsen’s 65th birthday. Artists whose work he collected had been asked to create a cube in Jack’s honor of 8 x 8 inches. Since my work is an illusion of depth, I took a letter he had written to me and I folded the letter into a cube where his name appears on the top and my initials can be seen on the side. In this way I created a tapestry of an 8 x 8 cube, but it was an illusion.”  ~Helena Hernmarck
