Geary A. Jones Woven Mantis Sculpture

Weaver and artist Geary A. Jones uses textile construction techniques to create sculptures.  Here is his description that he provided for us of this work:  "MANTIS is woven of a nylon and cotton material that has been painted on both sides ( to a degree ), and white printer's canvas ( of a synthetic material that I found in a dumpster ). The skeleton is 4-guage cattle fencing."  Original posting, dated 9/6/08 updated on 10/9/08.

Thanks for posting information about artists who use their textile training to create artwork... God knows there is not much work in the industry at this point... at least in the US of A!

MANTIS is woven of a nylon and cotton material that has been painted on both sides ( to a degree ), and white printer's canvas ( of a synthetic material that I found in a dumpster ). The skeleton is 4-guage cattle fencing.
I love recycling-but there is no paper in this piece.
