The article examines the texture in the textile works of artist Tim Harding. The author says that Harding used a textured surface in concealing and revealing his views of the world. His wall pieces and garments are made possible by building up layers of color, stitching them together, and slashing through them to show the selected color areas. She stresses that the artist created a new beauty from a slash act. Among his works that illustrate the layered color characteristics are "Swimmer #3," "Green Reflections," and "Deadheads."
