"Inka River"
I made this piece for the "Merge and Flow" members' show which will be held in Minneapolis this coming June.
Description: While doing research from the
pre-Colombian era in Peru I started doing my drawings and ended up with this fish. I wanted to create a river where two colors merge so I used jungle green and golden yellow and create the illusion of movement and flow with the wavy hand-dyed and silk screened fabrics. The hand embroidery patterns are typical designs the natives used on their clothing and ceramics.
 Materials:  painted, hand-dyed and silk screened cloth. Paper lamination. Machine, hand embroidery and beading.
