And here's the super-crap image of the piece I made yesterday, in a mad rush to make the deadline for the Dia de los Muertos show at Artworks. I had been working on a completely different idea, but it wasn't happening, so at the last minute I reverted to one of my favourite techniques, the paper cut. The mirrored design is created by cutting a piece of folded paper* with an X-Acto knife, all in one piece. I mounted it on a piece of hand marbled cloth that I made quite a while ago, and then bordered it with rick rack (yay!) and some lovely matte black Japanese wool.
I kinda like its lurid quality, but I must stop doing stuff by the seat of my pants.
(*Technical note: I used heavy Canson Mi-Tientes paper - it was a PITA to cut)
