Indigo Hill Arches
48 x 36 cm
Two black and white images of 'Hill Arches' sculpture by Henry Moore combined in Photoshop, printed on hand dyed indigo cotton and silk treated with 'BubbleJet Set'. Machine quilted with variagated threads, hand stitched with 'House of Embroidery' Cotton perle thread .
There's nothing like a deadline to concentrate the mind! When the theme of 'Light and Shadow was set in the 'International Quilt Challenge' I had lots of grandious ideas of continuing the idea of the 'Taplow Vase' in looking at some pewter vases from multiple viewpoints and on large scale. Then with reveal date looming and nothing started I remembered a top I'd put together for a demonstration on inkjet printing using 'poster printing' function to split an image over 4 A4 sheets ( I subsequently used that technique to print 16 sheets of organza for my 'Rich as Honesty' quilt)
Next year there will be a major exhibition at Kew of work by David Nash. Can't wait!!
It's been a while but I've had a session updating my website with a gallery of new work - do stop by and say hello!
