On The Surface
31”H x 19”W (hanging rod included)
Ginkgo trees appear frozen in time and are often referred to as “living fossils” because they have changed little since the time of dinosaurs, over 190 million years ago.
On the Surface began as a sun painting with backyard foliage as stencils. Images were manipulated and combined to produce a single digital image that was printed onto a fabric panel. The result is a machine quilted whole cloth quilt constructed from digital textile prints.
Materials: water-soluble fabric paints and inks; ginkgo leaves as stencils; cotton fabric and threads; 80/20 cotton/poly batting.
