Art Every Day, Monday February 4, 2013
Here is today's new piece. I don't really like it. Not at all happy with the large triangle. My hope was to trump color which I feel like I succeeded with. The light, cool blue violet circles are physically on top of the yellow orange strip and after quilting they visually remain on top. Note how the two partial circles that are not on top of the wide yellow orange strip look as though they are deeper in the design field than the full circles are. It's a great depth illusion.
It continues to be a real trip working with nothing but fabrics and other products that I've dyed. I feel such a personal connection to each piece.
I really like the yellow orange edge finish that I did on this one. It's made from twisting strips of the yellow orange fabric and couching it on. By the way, that fabric is made from pineapple - cool huh!
