I love texture. I love it so much that I hunt around my house for things to slap onto a canvas and paint over. Crumpled paper (brown and tissue), joint tape, onion and potato mesh bags, cheesecloth, heated tyvek, little micro beads…nothing is safe from me. I like contrasting textures.
I love the textural markings I get in my hand dyed fabrics. There is movement and pattern. Some people like the flat colored hand dyes. Not me…give me excitement and zing and movement! Here are a couple of collages on canvas that I have been working on. These use all those things mentioned above.
