Alvin, TX USAWidth:
Hand dyed and commercial fabric, threads; appliqué, beading, couching, satin stitching.Artist's Statement:
I created a piece of orange thread-fabric by laying
rayon thread over water-soluble stabilizer and then heavily stitching over
the threads. After putting that thread-fabric on my background, I just kept
having to add shapes, couched threads, beads, and satin stitching until the
piece told me to stop. I kept all of the main components orange, but using
different values in fabric and threads. I added green beads and sequins for
contrast and some rest from the orange.
