That Storm IV
Line, texture, and sparkle play together in 'That Storm'; a significant happening in March 2011 where hurricance force winds blew across Georgia Strait and over Quadra Island. Many trees blew down and the ocean washed over the land.
Materials and techniques include: silk and procion dyeing, Hand stamped storm at sea block, various wool and cotton fibres, overlaid with polyester sheer fabrics, heavy stitching to create movement and texture, burning to melt sheer fabrics, oil paintsticks.
This piece will join the 'On the Wind' travelling exhibition with the Fibre Art Network, starting at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta during Quilt Canada on June 4-6, 2015
