I recently finished my 7th module towards the Diploma in Technical Hand Embroidery at the RSN. As expected, the pieces are becoming more and more complicated to execute. This time, my technique was Advanced Goldwork. Amping it up for the "advanced" part was using more difficult threads and more precise techniques.
As I have moved through this program, I have decided to increase the artistic challenges on these pieces. In these pieces, I am trying to do more and more original design rather than interpreting a photograph or drawing.
This time, I decided to play with moving into abstract interpretation. I took a form, interpreted its skeleton and let the gold take over.
This is the inspiration for my goldwork piece ....
I think I captured the movement and journey of the piece ... as well as definitely going to the abstract. I certainly wasn't literal!!
What do you think??
