Artists are often identified by the subject matter they work with. In this exhibition I am interested in creating a conversation between Knitting and Crows, two bodies of work I have been engaged and identified with over the past ten years. In this series of hand pulled monoprints, issues of community, life, transition, process and communication are explored. For many years, crows and birds brought threads to a communal nest and held the thread of conversation between themselves. Over the years the threads have become yarn, knitted and tangled, unraveled and reconstructed. Patterns and process are explored and enlarged as it relates to the rhythms and transitions of our daily lives. The birds continue to fly in and out bringing their voices to the conversation.

Carol E.S. MacDonald is an artist, and master printmaker living and working in Vermont. She attended the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Lake Placid School of Art.
