I've been wanting to develop some fully resolved pieces which feature small fabric elements that I have "worked" with dyes, paints, printing, stitching, surface design, embellishing, etc.,which can be tied together into a meaningful whole. A bit more than the Small Studies, but which feature some of these interesting components. I also find myself working further and further from the frequently reviled "art quilt." More framing, more stretched work, more mixed media, and more freedom to work the surface as I please instead of satisfying someone else's definition and limitations. This piece, which I am referring to as Screens for lack of a real title, fulfills these goals.
