Off the Wall
18" x 66" ©2005
Off The Wall weaves together the many threads that were my process and experiences as part of a year long exploration entitled "Inside The Dress". I followed my love of altering fabrics using textile paint and a bleach discharge process. Parts of my inner person are revealed in the colours and imagery of the cloth I created and the piecing together of the materials.
Hand painted, dyed and discharged cotton fabric, cotton and rayon threads, chicken wire, yarn, oil pastel, recycled bits and pieces, machine pieced and quilted, hand stitched and quilted
