The Fabric of Space - Textile Art

If we could only see, what would energy, gravity and dark matter look like? What shapes do the mysterious webs holding our universe together form? How does matter and energy distort and bend the fabric of space and time?

I've finally finished with my melted circles (see previous post). They are mounted on poles in a 3D wave formation. I added more circles with rays of golden hot glue exploding from them. The piece is called "The Fabric of Space".

Primordial Soup - Textile Art

My 3D melted pink creation from the previous post now has a background and is ready to hang. I painted and printed on black Lutradur with ordinary and metallic acrylic paints, and then free machined the piece onto some bright blue acrylic felt. I used the soldering iron to cut and shape the edges and the heat gun to distress the background allowing the blue to show through.

The 3D pink cells were melted on with the soldering iron. I have named the piece Primordial Soup. 3.8 billion years ago life began. Cells divided and connected together in new ways to form our most ancient ancestors. How beautiful the evolution of nature.

Window Sketches

Today I did a little "on location" sketching at a ruined abbey.
