surface filling painting (III)

500.00

there's a classification of stitches in embroidery called 'surface filling stitches' which were designed to enhance your sampler, create lovely border art, or help fill in all the blank spaces with marks and texture. as a process-based artist, i fell in love with these stitches. 

as i continued to make small meditative stitch "samplers" of wandering stitches, they began to feel like miniature journeys through the flow state of the artistic process. i realized then, the same concept could be applied to paintings and considering stretched canvases are essentially fabric over a rigid embroidery hoop, and the surface filling paintings were born.

each piece is a mixed media textural feast, combining both paint and thread to create a visual landscape of interest. 

this is a brand new series of work for me, and the first time ever they are available for purchase.
