handmade paper by Suzanne Coley
A few weeks ago I began my new series Monsters. I have been trying to keep the linocuts and handmade papers concise, simple, and clean. Sometimes this means destroying some pieces and starting over. We will see . . .
Vintage Velvet, Embroidery & Silkscreens
This week's book See Us is about bringing to light that which has been in the dark. See Us, is also the title of the main poem in the book. I silkscreened the poem on the textile page. When the text was dry, I hand embroidered glass beads to the page.
To further the motif of "see us" I printed many of the images with a pale ink on the dark velvet. This created haunting, ghost-like imagery.
The finished book: The poetic interweaving of rare African textiles, modern fibers, original imagery, and poetry.
