Homecoming

Another in the Altered Ancestors series, I'm going to enter it in a juried show with theme of "landscape". I'm all over the place right now, as you can see...just a common thread, I guess...

That's really cool. Something surreal and evocative about this one for sure.

a really interesting piece - green growth appears to be attached to her face parasitically; strong sense of ambiguity. good luck with entry in landscape show.

Is this really embroidered, with thread and needle, or is that your term for the (painted?) tree? I really can't tell when I enlarge the photo and your techniques are always so unusual! I really, really like this!

f- yes, it is really embroidered. it presents an interesting probelem in mounting, it's necessary to steam a piece of acid free paper and press the photo (back covered with archival glue) into the paper with a piece of felt underneath, so that that the damp paper absorbs the bumpy back threads and I don't end up with a warped surface.

This is spectacular. "El árbol no deja ver el bosque" (Can't see the forest because the tree)

I do like this one..'the big green negative space is wonderful.

Laura said...

very powerful and beautiful.

Very taken with that: the green is a startling shade and fabulously done but it is that sea that's really speaking to me at the moment. Giving an eternity to it.
And great star.
