In a previous post, I discussed the piece SOMETIMES I GO TO PIECES. I painted a huge amount of canvas strips for that piece, tried to use them on another piece, but it just didn’t make it.
I ran across a few straggler strips and knew what I wanted to do. I painted MORE canvas, but will use it in a different way.
Having worked with textiles…with a mixed media mindset…over the past year, I have had the urge to use them in a very loose and original state, “original” referring to their origins. I wanted a more earthy and handworked presentation, referencing a simpler time…back to basics…not only in technique but also without the computer technology and chemically assisted “everything” used in some textile pieces today.
I will show you the results tomorrow…from the studio
