I had a quick deadline this month which turned into a great opportunity to explore a mixed media idea that I’ve been thinking about.
These weavings are all made directly on poplar blocks using various materials – wool yarn, roving, hemp twine, and even plastic. I was hoping to achieve a kind of landscape look with these and then added the figures on top.
They’re each only 3.5″ x 6″. The figures are drawn and painted onto shrinky dink material and added on after. I have one larger one that I haven’t photographed yet. I’ve been thinking of making some big work like this but I also enjoy the intimacy of these smaller ones.
