Beautiful Nonsense is the name of this latest art work which was a picture so stuck in my mind because I had watched so much of the oil spill in the Gulf on television. I thought of using some of the leak shots I had saved in an abstract fiber art work, and I decided to change things a little by giving a background that looked more like relief features.
Our environment has been so heavily impacted by this unfortunate oil spill, but I decided to tap into that negetive energy and turn it into a positive work of art.
Fabrics used were African print and black Swiss linen.
Work is machine stitched, heavily trapunto'd, and machine quilted.
Work is also hand painted and meticulously hand beaded.
