original painting on silk, contemporary wall hanging


Shipping to United States: Free

This work is an original painting done in dye on silk. The outline of the figures was drawn from a live model, then the rest of the painting work was completely in my studio. For me, there is something incredibly freeing and exciting about painting on silk. The way the dye moves and flows presents a creative experience unlike other mediums. The fabric I used is crepe de chine, a heavy and opulent quality silk, and all the dyes are permanent and will remain brilliant. This piece of silk measures 46x50, unframed, and can be traditionally framed, hung loosely to allow movement, or worn as a beautiful wearable wrap. The edges of this piece are not sewn, two are on the selvage and the other two are open. If you want to use it as d├ęcor in your home and would like help on display options, please let me know and I can make suggestions and/or do the framing for you and build this into the cost of the piece. I call this work Life in Movement, because I think this is what we all hope for - forward movement and our creative energy expressed.
