When Your Subject Digs the Work...
So, I have been working on a series of small works for an upcoming show recently. I hadn't been posting too many 'final' work shots but in the last few days, I have been trying to get some of the finished works together, measured and all their details listed in preparation.
In a nutshell I have been using screen shots of some of my favourite women music/pop stars as the inspiration for the tapestries. I am loving the interplay between the pixelated, low res source material and the translation into the beads of the woven tapestry.
I was super trilled to have some tweets going out by the most amazing CATCALL (aka. Catherine Kelleher) who features in two of my little tapestries. Always lovely to get a response from the actual subject!
As the works come together a little more, I will be talking about this mini project.
