A Beautiful Life
Total size: 20" x 20"
(artwork is 15" x 15" and mounted on larger paper for framing)
This piece is made of 204 cut, dyed and stitched pieces of paper. I used 27 water baths to dye the paper and it has 487 stitches in the work. The title represents how many different pieces roles, and experiences we put together to create and craft our individual lives. The color is very diverse and bright, and the thread is all hand dyed gradient color reflecting this theme as well.
