Tissus en Folie
Along with this my mother’s house, came many things (and strings). Some - I chose to hold dear. Others - were simply left behind.
A jar of marbles….a basket full of fabric scraps - were among them. The scraps are what remains of my mother’s art. The marbles are a part of her childhood.
For years they’ve sat while I’ve wondered how I might take this precious legacy and make it my own. I’ve worried it would not be enough. I’ve feared I’d never do it justice.
Bright new lights allowed me to see. Time has given me permission to listen.
The shapes…the color…the texture and light. It’s what my mother so loved. Her remains are a part of who I am - a gift.
I’ve had all I’ve needed.

This is only a small beginning of an ongoing and much larger project.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Marcie Scudder’s artist's journey began almost two decades ago as a means of slowing down and recording the world thru her camera’s lens.
As a self-taught photographic fine artist, writer and yogini – she believes in the transformative healing powers of daily practice as a means of connecting to the spirit that resides within.
By yoking together the ancient teachings of yoga with her passion and love for the animal and natural world, Marcie’s art acts as a visual and verbal expression of simplicity, silence, solitude and self.
Like life itself, her art is an ever-evolving process. She likens it to a vinyasa yoga practice, a continuous connection between movement and breath.
Currently, Marcie lives and works in Stowe, VT.
From her treetop studio, she finds inspiration in the changing seasons and majestic views of the mountains.
