This design creates movement and flow into and out of the artwork wixture that is evident in the photography. This design creates movement and flow into and out of the artwork with the radiating square motif. This series is where I first began to experiment with the scientific iron filings. I used them along with freezer paper to create my canvas for the textural hand stitching. Installation of this piece can be in either a vertical or horizontal orientation which really opens up the display options for this work. Merging this artwork with any or all of the other pieces in the series creates a very interesting contemporary artwork with infinite shape possibilities. One-of-a-kind original textile artwork signed and dated by the artist. Included with the artwork is a Certificate of Authenticity, Care Instructions, and display slats. Installation simply requires two (2) nails or wall screws. Artwork is carefully rolled, packed in heavy cardboard container, and shipped directly from the artist's studio.
