Art Every Day, Tuesday, February 12, 2013
Here is today's new piece. It's much simpler than what I've been doing lately. With it, I mostly wanted to see what happens when I put a bold color such as these reds in the negative space and put a weaker color, a color usually reserved for negative space such as this brown, into the positive space.
I'm enjoying the color combination. It's got a quiet energy. The rectangle with the embroidered flowers works well as a focal point, aided as it is with the added dimension of the cheesecloth which surrounds it. The ruffled fabric that makes the "L" formation works well as a counterpoint. The quilting in the negative space is actively interesting but also heavy enough to keep the red behind the browns. All in all, it is a rather good experiment.
