Eye of the Sparrow
Eye Of The Sparrow is a 20 x 24 inch textile mosaic. The Asian influence appears in the form of the vertical side panel and her natural beauty. The juxtaposition of the colors and form add strength and beauty to both. The image is simultaneously evocative and serene.
Beginning with a charcoal sketch I create my images using layers and layers of fabric. I call the process “textile mosaic”. To have the mosaic effect every small piece of cloth sits next to another piece. I use a multi-step archival adhesive applied with a brush. Every piece of cloth is added one at a time. All the fabric is hand cut. The cloth I use is cotton and silk, only natural fibers. Using vintage, recycled and hand dyed fabrics I utilize a variety of pattern size and colors to create light, pattern, depth and texture.
