Oil on Saguran
34 x 24 inches
Painted on Saguran (raffia) fabric. Unlike the traditional canvas and other linen, Saguran is handwoven in the Philippines, from the fibers of young leaf sheaths of the Buri palm. The varying widths and thickness of each strand, the knots in random spots, and the loose open weave, lend to its coarse surface and rich dimensional depth.
