Fetid Wells III (click on image to enlarge)
This is the third and last piece in the Fetid Wells series. It is about 3' x 4' and comprised of three distinct layers which are separated by foam core and rest about 1/2 inch apart from each other within the frame. It is massive compared to most of my work. It has loads of hand stitching on painted, dyed, printed, embellished, etc., surfaces of cotton on industrial felt. The photos do not really do justice to the shadows which form between the layers. It might just represent a new direction in my work ... time will tell.
