Appliqué Painting
Embroidery, printed fabric, fabric collage, felt, organza, trimmings and patches on stretched cotton.
190 x 183cm


The Appliqué Paintings bring together my own printed fabrics with found patterns, large blanket-stitched felt patches, veils of organza and motifs from my Lockdown Tarot deck, which have been drawn in Tilt Brush and printed on cotton. The series builds on the achievements of my Booze Object paintings from 2019, using fabric to achieve compositional and spatial qualities typically associated with painting.
