Five Layers of Texture

Combining crocheted hemp, a digital print on cheesecloth skin and 3 digital prints on lutradur this piece will be assembled using beads and silk yarn.  The print is the same, although there are differences in the printing of the different surfaces.  The bottom layer of the piece will be crocheted hemp and the other 4 layers will be assembled using beads as spacers to separate and add depth to the layers.  Once the top layers of lutradur are completely assembled with the cheesecloth and hemp a heat gun will be used to melt out other sections of the lutradur.  This allows the cheesecloth skin to show through and changes the configuration of the lutradur texture.
