Ice Storm, Still Life Suspended

February 11, 2010

Embroidery in silk, linen, and cotton on West African cotton batik.

I was interested in the instant that all is suddenly suspended in ice, the deep night, and the brilliance of the moon on snow.  All the seeds, twigs, leaves and pods now wait in anticipation of spring.

I dyed some threads specifically for this work to add nuance to the palette.
