Weaving with Paint

My latest painting, "Weaveworld", is included in a fabulous exhibition of mixed media art by Ottawa Mixed Media Artists (OMMA), hanging right now at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum (Almonte, ON) in the Norah Rosamond Hughes Gallery.

WEAVEWORLD, mixed media  48" x 24" $2,500. CAD
I created "Weaveworld" based on the "Woven" theme. Participating artists were encouraged to push creative boundaries and to think "large" in terms of size. I pursued the idea of weaving a story with words and art.

Materials include original digital images, ink, fluid, metallic, iridescent and interference acrylic paints, acrylic mediums, hand-cut masks and stamps, fabric, beads, metal.

Processes include glazing, layering, collage, ink-jet printing, calligraphy, machine and hand-sewing, stamping on gallery canvas.

I chose this painting to accompany the description of my art "style" over at Seth Apter's Altered Page. You can read about it here.
