Cecilia created these two works on a Christmas holiday with her family in the US. During the last few hours of the drive to a remote cabin in the Adirondacks, a huge snow and ice storm struck the area, almost preventing her arrival. Nine days of snow followed, creating a white frozen landscape, and the huge windows of the cabin, reaching to the roof’s peak, made the frozen world seem present from within.
Cecilia created these two monochrome needlepoints while looking out of those windows at the surrounding wonderland. As a possible response to the snow and the early, dark nights, these works have a sense of play with their composition, which perhaps becomes more prominent due to the absence of colour.
