"Working with line, a very thin rayon space-dyed thread pulled taut and embedded with acrylic medium, the color bleeds, disappears and reappears. This physical way of drawing engages spontaneous  trajectories in random yet intentional configurations. Geometric complexities, inside/outside, gemlike configurations explore both inner and outer spaces."         –Lisa Nelson Raabe
