Bones of the Forest
19/03/2009 - This dyptych is a response to the natural decay and renewal occuring in the woods of my home. Comercial black fabric was discharged, and scraps of silk, batiks and velvets were appliqued and stitched to form the two square panels, mounted on fake suede. Hand built,paper thin, unglazed porcelain elements were sewn into place, and the whole piece was machine stitched. The colour and form was inspired by the fungi and mosses growing on trees felled by Hurricane Katrina the previous year. New life springs abundantly from the bones of the forest..
