Open Tapestry II

Woven cotton tapestry with hand embroidery in cotton and metallic. 1.4 x 1.8 metres

Open I explores the intricacy of identity. The landscape is entirely female, divided by colour inversion to articulate the intimate conflicts within the scene.  

The embroidery style draws from the layered colours of the woven tapestry, with a focus on layered gradients. The circular embroideries are carefully built with layered golds, burnt oranges, shades of red and pink to augment the planetary details.
