Windows On Woodstock is my textile art studio in Santa Ynez, CA. It is a converted barn which sits high on a hill overlooking Woodstock Road and the Santa Ynez Valley. Within the 1500+ square feet I create art pieces from my hand dyed fabrics which I screen print, paint, stencil, otherwise embellish and stitch. My work ranges from representational to conceptual to abstract. Several series are incorporated into my body of work.
Windows On Woodstock
Monday, April 2, 2012
It has been such a long time since I have posted to my blog that I have a number of pieces that should be included here. We have been internet challenged on our property, and finally have a new service provider that allows us to have download and upload capabilities that are more consistent with the needs of normal human beings. I will get to most of the newer pieces over the next few weeks. This trilogy is called "Primary Colors". The pieces are hand-dyed silks and cottons, and incorporate simple screened and hand-painted designs that allow the relationships of the bold colors to dominate the visual impact of the installation. Each is free-motion quilted in a different pattern that empasizes the screened design of the individual piece.
Here you can see the detail of the stitching, which repeats the circular pattern of the screened print. Both "Blue" and "Yellow" have similarly stitched designs in geometric patterns emulating the bars and lines in those two pieces. More to come!
