I did two pieces both inspired by cubism, specifically Girl with Mandoline by Picasso and Still life with Herrings by Georges Braque.
I wanted to recreate a sense of confused perspective and shadowing in the design so used repeated overlapping stencilled shapes made with Markal paintstiks. A blog by Jane actually reminded me of the shadows you can create with layering light coloured oil pastels over dark, so thank you Jane.
I added individual geometric shapes sometimes folded and distorted to confuse the eye, then cabled and couched threads by machine on top. I added a zipped lining and bag feet to make it an art piece but functional too.
The second piece was a felted wrap in the same colour palette and design features.
