I used to be a part of a wonderful fiber group called LINT - it stood for Ladies in New Textiles. There were 12 of us, most of whom were teachers and/or exhibiting artists. We did lots of exhibits as a group - sometimes just new work and many times involving a theme. One of my favorites was the theme on "Transparency" We could interpret it any way we wanted and it was great fun to see how everyone approached it so differently. I love working with leaves and sheer fabric so I thought it would be a good match.
I did a very light colorwash on the organza and transferred images to create a more interesting backdrop.
This piece will be part of a new exhibit opening at the NC Arboretum featuring the works of Mary Stori, Kate Weston and myself. We are hanging it next week and it runs close to 2 months. Check my blog "exhibits" for more information.
