Jennifer Thoreson, Multidisciplinary Artist

In this image, you see the full design that is embroidered onto the bedspread that covered the bed in the back bedroom of the house.  The two figures are both haloed, referencing traditional religious art, and mimicking the shape that engrosses the heads of the two figures in the photograph Soulmates. Both the photograph and the linen spread represent the love relationship between my husband and I.  On our wedding day, the last photograph taken was of Greg and I sitting together on the bed in our honeymoon suite, wearing our wedding garments and large, ridiculous latex horse masks. It is one of my favorite pictures of us together, because it shows our sense of humor, and how much we truly enjoy one another.  The horse figures in this piece represent the joy, and the like-mindedness we share.  The floral adornments reflect our fragrant garden wedding. The braids at the figures’ feet represent a cord of three strands. Ecclesiastes 4:12 reads, “And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
