Travelling on 2016.......
We move forward as a group into our fifth year with the challenges of working our pieces in series at A2 size. The working theme for this year is 'Treasures'; we will be producing four pieces in total over the year.
As an added challenge this year a number of the group have prepared work for a group exhibit at the Taiwan International Show in 2016.
Our main exhibition this year will be in Prague in April where the 'Nature Abstracted ' series will be shown; we hope these pieces will travel across the water for an exhibition in Minneapolis, USA in June.

I started a series of work a couple of years ago about the Middle East and my experiences there so this is piece number 5 - only three more to go for an exhibition at the show in Beaujolais!
Apologies but this image refuses to be in the correct orientation.

For this piece I chose several circular motifs from my won surfaced designed stash. Some are stamped, some are resists and some are sunprinted. I felt they provided the continuity of the circular motion of the hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico. As a native Texan...this is not a stretch for a concept in this series! The "land" fabric is a pounded fabric which I felt had the beautiful look of a topographic map.
The hurricanes are unstoppable and often seem to have a mind of their own. Just when we think we know
the direction they will take and where landfall will be...it can change and head along a totally different path. Sometimes that is for the better but other times that change can cause widespread destruction. This lack of predictability is why I chose the title "Winds of Change"

Different activators were used to produce the rust from lemon juice to green tea! The unpredictable effects make the pieces ideal for hand stitching
