Having been inspired by Aboriginal Art, I set myself the task of creating a piece using french knots, to imitate this style of art. This was an extremely time consuming process but I really do feel that the outcome has been worth it. I don't think the true tactile nature of the piece shows in photographs because french knots produce a texture which feels especially pleasant when handled.
Following on from what I did at university, I have also looked at the back of the piece. I obviously didn't sew in order for the back to be seen, however I think it has it's own aesthetic qualities. Seeing the back of the piece has inspired me to create pieces with these qualities in the future.
Thanks for reading.
Dreaming is the center of Aboriginal religion and life. To them it is much bigger than the world of our nightly dreams. And Aboriginal Art associated with dreaming was most influential.ReplyDelete
