Quick piece for a suitcase
Just posted off a small 10" X 7" piece for the SAQA suitcase collection, I enjoyed working small scale on this piece having done a number of much larger pieces in the same series. As usual the base was dyed and discharged cotton with painted fusible web and dyed silk organza pieces before machine stitching and adding flecks of gold leaf.
"An abstract expression of the creative journey taken by the artist, discarding the fragments of previous ideas and designs as they search for inspiration for the next piece of work."
The detailed photo below shows more of the layers and gold leaf.
