Dyed, Printed Backgrounds

I made about 30 of these little dyed/printed “backgrounds” after we came back from Ireland last fall. I’ve tried stencil prints on them, sort of as “illustration,” and have incorporated some of them into my Experiments in 2 layers. I am waiting for them to speak to me further. They incorporate bucket dyeing, screen printing, Presist resist, and a kind of rubbing/texture transfer using a foam paint roller. Fiber-reactive dyes on cotton.

I use the materials and techniques of the Japanese art of katazome (paste resist stencil dyeing) to capture my experience of nature. My work celebrates daily meetings with the wild birds, plants, and lake breezes of my local urban surroundings.
