Current work in progress.
This textile collage painting titled Divided By Little Furrows, features an unusual and beautiful old wool textile patterned with small channels. The fabric was taken from an haute couture skirt made in Barcelona circa 1940. I found the skirt in an antique mall and was instantly enamored with the green color and with the texture of the material. After doing some research, I now understand that Barcelona has a rich fashion history owing in part to an early 20th century prosperous textile industry.
