Tapestry of Lights

Tapestry of Lights

I recently flew from London to Frankfurt at night, and when I saw the vast expanse of lights beneath me, I was completely astounded. The beauty of the shimmering sea of lights against the black backdrop of land and sea was breathtaking. Since the entire flight was at a low altitude, I could enjoy the beautiful scenery throughout my flight. Each light is an indication of human activity, where people live, work, or travel, and depicts the life of the city. In this piece I wanted to capture the essence of the beauty of lights in the cityscape at night. The lights looked like shining gold, silver, and jewels from an aerial view, so therefore I used a combination of hand embroidery and sequins on a dark cloth backdrop for a shining effect. I am very pleased to be able to capture and share an experience which moved me deeply.
