‘Still waters run deep’
Latin Proverb

This is a conversation which holds a pictorial image of onion layers as embodied meaning. The metaphor describes the peeling away of layers of an onion through this narrative. A bringing too light, a discerning or a pondering emerges bringing understanding where these deep pools reside. Through the lens of textile making and for those who have a quizzical nature, we can connect to these layers and their complexities. The visual mark making holds profoundness through its veneer and invites opportunity for quiet reflection.
