For the start of one of the pages hemp and dyed burlap are combined with crochet. Once this part of the page is finished, digital prints of patterns from the Waipoua forest will be cut and assembled into the finished piece. The books theme is forest textures constructed by mixed media and digital prints on alternative surfaces. Right now I am experimenting with putting the first of the books together before going forward. Starting an environment of pushing the digital print further then I have before and continuing to use my prints in textural ideas.
This piece is 4 feet long and 8 inches wide. It is composed of dyed burlap that has been cut and crocheted into the piece with hemp.
