A three section woven wall sculpture commission with numerous color, line, and texture changes.Four layers are woven independently and cut acrylic inserts are placed in the bottom pockets for stability and the top layer is woven longer, so that it can be pushed back against bottom and raised in soft, dimensional folds. There is great variety in
the dark/light color changes, with many linear changes in width and repetition.
A complex woven relief with four layers woven independently, two for top layer and two for bottom layer, with cut acrylic shapes inserted into woven pockets. The top layer is woven longer than bottom layer and pushed back against bottom layer to get raised, dimensional folds.
I cut templates to mark patterns on the woven cloth, paint surfaces with various metallic paints and laminate painted metallic discs to the woven surface. I make the discs by pouring a mix of Plaster of Paris and water into molds, remove after dry, then sand and paint the discs with metallic paint.
