Fibre on Cotton
Style: Contemporary Realism
Year Created: 2007
Description: This large piece is multi layered, stitched and bonded silk,synthetic and cotton threads on a dyed cotton velvet background. The inspiration for it came from the picture of the Spiral Galaxy taken by the Hubble telescope.
Artist’s Comments: Galaxy was one of my most ambitious pieces yet. It is very large for a single fibre piece so had to have many parts of it stitched ahead of time and restitched onto the background of dyed cotton velvet. The large matting was given to my by Gail Harker to set it off beautifully.
