A painstaking approach to thread and wood

From a distance, you might suspect the work of Spokane-based artist Christina Rothe to be paintings. But a closer look reveals that her interpretive pieces are made from pieces of thread painstakingly arranged on wood. Rothe spent her youth in Lagos, Nigeria, and was educated in Europe as well as the U.S., giving her work a global feel, as you can see in the above piece, "Blink of a City." She relocated to the Inland Northwest about five years ago and has displayed her work around the region and beyond since. ♦
