"Women Forms, a series of woven vessels, speak of the cultures and the women I have encountered that have had an impact on my life. The forms reflect connections and relationships, the changing roles of women, shared stories, and ways in which women live and learn.Some of the Women Forms stand alone. Others rejoice in the company of other women - daughters, sisters, mothers, friends. The forms contain and are shaped by layers of experience, each one representing a visual collection of passions and sorrows, joys and strengths. My work and travel in Africa, particularly in Ghana, have been strong influences. The fabrics, the colors, the earth, the cultures, and the people continue to inform the vessels I create." - Jackie Abrams
