Eggplant ala Albers
And, I couldn't make just one!! I hope you all can help me decide which one should be part of the Twelve X Twelve mosaic. The one above is the last one that I made.
The above two pieces are the same fabrics with the wine and green trading places. I love playing with colors to see what happens when they are juxtaposed in different ways. Also, the color is more wine than shows in this photo which I took with my photo lights in the studio. I am going to try to photograph them again with natural light.
I know this is not an emerald green, but I do love that limey green and couldn't help putting it into one of my pieces.
This is the first piece which is organza that is fused to make the composition. I had a problem photographing these and probably should shoot them again with different lighting. This piece is much moodier than shows here in the photo. They are all made from silk fabrics and the sheen sometimes makes it difficult to photograph. (Note: the photos have been replaced and better represent the actual colors.)
I had a difficult two months at the end of 2010 and started the new year bereft of creative ideas. But, when Nikki, posted the colors for this theme, I had a quick flash of Josef Albers' square in a square color studies. I decided to go with that. So, comment away and tell me which one should stay in the eggplant collection
