Our T
Daina Taimina
wool knitted sculpture, with knitting needles, 28" x 28";  $950
Exhibited at Village West in Ancien Régime: the pre-revolutionary world Fall 2018

"When my friend Gail Rothschild told me her idea of painting what Madame Defarge would have knitted today, it echoed to my love of knitting. I imagined myself to be Madame Defarge and immediately the shape of T came into my mind.

Madame Defarge knits T - what could it mean? Trust? Treason? Truth? Tower? Tacit? Tag? Taint? Tamperer? Twitter? Trump?

Or all the above tangled together with a hidden message inside "наш" ("ours" in Russian)? There is no right or wrong side - symmetry of letters lets us to see the same message whatever side we choose to look at."
