Ami Davis
In the mid 70’s and again in the 80’s I traveled to Mexico.
I explored the mountains, coastal villages and markets through the lens of a camera
in school buses that were shared by the Natives.
While traveling, I was struck by the colorful garments and shawls worn in contrast to the
purple hues of the skies beyond.
At that time, photography was my passion; weaving was simply appreciated but not yet learned.
From there, I taught myself the art of weaving, through tireless repetitions
and the creaking of the loom.
The sounds of the loom, smells of the fibers, colors and textures blended together
— this became part of my daily life.
I found myself drawn once again to the bright rich colors
like those that inspired me in Mexico.
Now as then, I continue to experience my weaving as interplay of textures
and colors and fibers blending together into one.
In addition to the bright colors, I've added to my inventory assorted
neutrals, browns, blacks and blues.
But it's the bright colors which always inspire me most.
