Storytelling: Linocuts and silkscreens on fabric

Back in July I blogged about printing on fabric.   I've been experimenting with telling stories on different mediums.  Since August, nine of these large fabric panels have been on exhibit at a busy bookstore in Maryland -- Ukazoo Books.
Linocuts and silkscreens on fabric - 4 feet and 5 feet panels
I am really pleased with the way the panels have held up, allowing viewers to see the nuances of the prints, pressure marks, and silk fabrics up close.

Tonight I deinstalled the exhibition and would like to thank everyone for allowing me to tell my stories.

52 Weeks of Printmaking on Textiles: Week 9

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.
