From Photo To Fiber Art 3

In the last 2 posts I talked about art that referenced photos.  Today I’m focusing on the photo itself as/in art.

One of my most recent finishes is just that.  I ‘ll show you a peek at it since it’s one that I will send in for submission to an exhibit so I want to hold off on publishing pictures of it until then.  SO… here’s a small section of one titled “All’s Well Under The Sun.”

All's One...detail. 2. wm. web

Small Detail of “All’s One Under The Sun.”


In this detail alone, there are parts of 3 different photos, yet I think this small section could stand alone as a finished piece.

This one was a true challenge though!  I went through a zillion attempts before I finished this one.  I used at least one, almost 2 entire sets of ink cartridges and rejected so many WIPS it’s not funny!

I posted a couple of them in January.  That’s how long I’ve been struggling with this one; but in the end, I’m pretty satisfied with the the results whether it gets accepted or not.

It’s for the SAQA call for art. “Concrete and Grasslands” so it won’t even be submitted until September for an exhibit that won’t open until June of 2016.

Once again, I’m linking up with Nina Marie’s Off The Wall Friday.

About turtlemoonimpressions

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
