What Next With The Blues?

Indigo tie-dye.

Husb and I are still recovering from Covid19, the symptoms are more or less gone but we’re both totally exhausted and my brain has turned to mush! I don’t have the energy or thought processes to so any artwork so I took a look at a piece of tie-dye a did a few weeks ago, with pure organic Indigo dye onto white cotton (during a session put on by the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery). I wasn’t too keen on the entire piece of fabric but I’ve chopped it down – on Adobe Photoshop, I didn’t get the scissors out! – into chunks that appeal to me.

What to do with them? I’m thinking maybe some freeform embroidery and beadwork, picking out some of the random elements laid down by the dyeing process. If I’ve got the energy! We’ll see.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks.

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artefacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.

    I’m glad you are working your way through the illness. Some of my friends suffered for several weeks with the mushy brain. Hopefully you won’t have to go through that. I’m loving the indigo dyed cloth! Looking forward to seeing what you decide on. Hang in there ❤️

      Hi Gayle, thanks 🙂 Brian is mushy and body is weak, and I’m not one that takes kindly to having to sit down and rest. But Sparta Puss is helping by jumping on my lap at every opportunity and pinning me down 😀 x
