To create tapestries like this one, Yente brushed different colored stains of paint onto a canvas. She then used needles to push wool thread into the canvas and over the long drips of paint. Consider how fast she may have painted the colored stains, and how slow the embroidery process may have been.
Yente made “non-figurative” art that does not show real people or things. We decide what the colors, shapes, and lines in Tapestry no. 6 mean to us. What do you see? Pick a line or shape from the artwork and make the movement you think the artist made to create it.
