Adaptation depicts a beautiful fuchsia, black, and white moth emerging from an old (1950s) can of moth poison. This piece was made using pieces of upholstery fabric were cut, linked together, and sewn using my cut-work technique. The wings and thorax are fully wired, and the antennae were made by sewing wire to vinyl.
LIfe is a constant metamorphosis of one kind or another. An exhausting cycle of taking what is thrown at you, and making it work. This moth not only adapted, she became something exquisite. I plan on doing the same thing.
