Handwoven Cloth, Canvas & Paint
The hand-woven non-wearable garments as soft 'costumes' or regalia are sewn onto canvas on stretcher bars, and the background canvas, and sometimes the woven surfaces are painted.  This mix of contemporary acrylic painting is a new approach to woven artworks.




The weaving for this work was a color study: how to mix orange, pink, coral and wine colored yarns. Also how to blend a variety of fibers: cottons, rayon/linens, rayon/polyester, and a glitter yarn. It can also be termed “using up the odds and ends in the yarn cupboard”.

The weave structure is basically an eight shaft twill variation originally published in 1962 by Robin & Russ and company in Santa Barbara, California. Later they had a shop in McMinnville, Oregon. I used two more shafts for the selvages, bringing the total shafts to ten.

Acrylic paints were used for the background on the canvas. Lots of stenciled squares, metal squares, and square buttons completed the piece.

Please note that the pink woven squares on the inside of the fabric are larger, while the ones on the outside are smaller.
