2nd year Unit 1 complete... happy days

All done with the new unit for the second year... dragged out a little but was worth all the hard work. Quite pleased with the final piece although there's always room for improvement. The project was based around the idea of "compare and contrast" and so after doing some research and sketching i finally chose to work around a fox skull found in a wooded area where i live and some interesting feathers...



And so after 6 months of sketching, sampling i came up with a final art piece using Velvet, Silk Satin and Bamboo Silk and as the piece shows stages, as does the print itself and gradually begins to fall apart. And after being introduced to Devore this semester i can safely say that this technique has been abused alot but all for good purposes...


The piece is 3m tall ad 1.15m wide all together and overall uses 6m of different fabrics to create the different layers. the idea of a visualization was for it to be shown in the natural history museum as a representation of the stages of life and fragility of the objects within the museum, the green and earthy colours also take a part in creating a more natural element to the piece.

All prep work with this project can be found in "UCA Work"
