Eleventh in New Series: Something from Nothing

These are shapes that I first worked with in my series of acrylic collages, 10 x 10.

Tentatively titled: Something from Nothing

This series, 24 x 24, is made of hand-dyed linen, pieced, with decorative stitching. In this case, the decorative stitching was done by machine with perle cotton embroidery thread and creates an illusion of transparency and even 3-dimensionality for the ovoid shape on the right.

I like the way the flat colours of fuchsia, coral and orange contrast with the mottled colouration of the background, seen better in the detail shot below.

Something from Nothing, detail
