Description

Organelles is an interesting series.  In this series I worked with forms based on shells and single celled life forms.  I also experimented with different media.

In this triptych, I stitched on Rives BFK printmaking paper with rayon thread. I hand colored the thread, from the back, with watercolor.  The color seeped along the thread, creating natural variations.  The images were assembled and permanently affixed to 3 light boxes.  The effect is lovely, whether the boxes are lit or unlit.

It is a  shop stopper that has won awards.
