Part of the thrill of a new creative project is brainstorming for ideas. These past few weeks have been an adventure in generating ideas. This embroidered artwork was my experiment during yesterday’s cyclone here in Auckland. I stayed indoors, surrounded by my fabric, threads, needles and sketching paper. I actually dyed this canvas in very strong coffee, which gave the fabric a very interesting finish – like parchment paper or an ancient treasure map.
Will post more of my experiments, as I work towards finalising my concept.
