I used colors in the string that mimiced the colors of the glass such as whites, greens and blues. I am very happy with the movement in this peice, and i like the geometric feel to this. I usually do figures and paint, but i really enjoyed getting to step away from that by using photography and sewing.
To me this piece shows the evolution of an idea through the eyes of an artist. You have reality, which is shown through the photograph, a real hand holding real glass in the real world. And then you see how an artists eye will create and add onto the things that already exist, which was shown by the string that is coming out of the glass and floating around the left side of the picture.
This piece looks very simple and feels very blissful and happy.
