Anraku (Ease): monotype, collage and stitching on paper, 30″ x 20″, 2013, $850 (sold by Cole Contemporary)
This quilt-inspired piece includes elements that wouldn’t normally be stitched together. I combined my photographs of concrete, sprayed and gouged, with my monotype prints in yellows, grays, black and white. The base is a grid of six paper “quilt squares” and I’ve layered stitching and circular shapes on top to break the grid. I love stitching my prints… especially the feeling of the needle punching through the layers of paper and creating movement through lines of dotted stitches.
