Still thinking about this piece. I know what I want to plug in the layers, but there is a ton of work left. Since I am leaving for Texas to teach at the Texas Federation of Fiber Artists Conference I will have to let it sit till I get back. The layers consist of a digital print on wire mesh, digital print on beverage cans and there will be slivers of beverage cans that have digital prints in between. It will be very crushed up. As you can see the layers fall off of each other right now. I may be able to get a few pieces done just to see what it looks like, but there is tons to do before I leave and my keynote to finish today. Those pesky images need to be in place and work:)
My piece Mariposa Grove has been accepted for Yosemite Renaissance XXVI at the Yosemite Gallery Museum to open on February 25, 2011. The opening reception is 5:30 to 7:30PM.
Mariposa Grove is 36″ x 17″ and is a digital print taken in the Grove in 2008 on an early morning hike. My husband and I arrived at around 7AM and and spent 3 hours hiking the grove as I took an obscene amount of pictures. The image is altered in Photoshop and printed on a piece of my hand made amate bark paper along with a piece of copper mesh. The prints are attached together on a piece of 1/4″ hardware cloth with waxed linen thread.
