mohair/silk yarn, repurposed mixed-media collage

9 1/4″ h x 9 3/4″ w

not for sale

This piece is my first effort at making use of the collage fragments that I posted about here. I wanted it to have a kind of homemade calendar look, very low-tech. I think it succeeds in that respect, but I think that grid composition is perhaps too static. I may make a second one, not using a grid, but instead have the collage fragments appear to “spill” downwards from the top and collect in a mass at the bottom. I’ll probably use this fine silk/mohair yarn again, but with larger needles so that the fabric is even looser and more delicate/fragile looking.
