Curl

20 x 16 inch stretched canvas with a 5/8 inch thick wooden frame that the canvas stretches over. It is a mixed media piece consisting of 3D fabric sculpture, gesso, and acrylic paint. Completed May 2012.

This painting is another in the Study of Fabric collection, studying the shapes and shadows created from twisting fabric. It creates an interesting curl shape that draws the eye from one side of the piece to another. The fabric is loose in the top right corner and slowly twists tighter and tighter around the circle until ending at a point. This compliments the soft fabric feel by creating action within the piece.
