Mixed Media on Silk
Style: Art Deco
Year Created: 2011
Description: This is a seven foot piece which can be viewed from both sides. It is a piece sandwiched with silk, synthetic sheers, cotton organza and tule with surface design of threads, ribbons, textile paints and foils and was heavily stitched. In order to have it lay flat, a stainless steel piano hinge was used on the top and bottom with wire threaded through the top for hanging.
Artist’s Comments: This piece was inspired by Gustav Klimt. I enjoy his decorative style with his sumptuous colours.
