I finished this small work last week, too late to include in my current exhibition. Contrasting the positive letterform shapes with negative space ones (that strip along the right is cut from portions of the same alphabet as the positive letter form shapes) has a lot of potential and I’ll be working with this idea again in the future.
The light marks on the darker horizontal band are hand stitched. Every step of making this piece felt playful and relaxed.
AKA Letters at the Edge, 2010, 20” x 20”, silk, applied silks, synthetic fabric, monoprinted and screen printed, painted and stitched, mounted on stretched canvas. $350.
