combination of hand dyed silk organza, string and paper.
Dying silk organza allows it to retain it's transparency and makes a great layering mechanism. Each layer combines in color and texture to present differently than simply layered alone. This is a great advantage when creating collage.
A string grid was placed between the layers of silk organza, added paint, oil stick and specialty mediums and allowed to dry.
Several holes were cut and black and white inkjet prints of grasses were adhered in those places, to peek through to the front.
This was mounted on wooden stretcher bars with a white interfacing backing. The silk retains it's transparent quality so that when light strikes this work, it almost glows.
