I've just started working on a shibori dyeing technique using solar energy. I hope to use this work in an upcoming exhibition I am part of in early January, which will be looking at renewables and fossil fuels.
There is extreme satisfaction in allowing nature to do her work. This way of creating has an unpredictability in contrast to painting a portrait, where you tend to be in some form of control all the way through the process.
I shall be very excited when i come to unwrap these small items...the process will be posted up in due course.
In my next post, I shall put up some images of my latest commissioned works. Til then, it's out with the dye jars!
