Time of Waiting 2

Time of Waiting 2, collage, by Karen KochTime of Waiting 2 was actually created before the larger version and was the inspiration for it.

This smaller version really has the feel of expectation while waiting for the contents to be revealed. The interior is glowing with such energy, just ready to burst through.

And so much luscious texture! Each layer is stitched individually; you can see some of the loose threads in the center.

On the wrapper, the writing is not made of actual words. It’s a type of mark making called “asemic writing”, meaning marks that resemble letters but are not.
