…Continued from last photo:
Detail of rope knotted figure I completed in 2000.
This was a traumatic time for me, and I was in art therapy. Yes, its supposed to be disturbing and frightening…if you see it that way.
Detail of front seated figure:
The limbs are flexible, and the ends are wrapped in string. No glue, or sewing was used in this figutre. Figure is a bit over 12 inches tall .
It was difficult to paint the cotton rope but I used a dry brush to sponge and stipple the paint on. I used metallic acrylic paints in gold, pearl, pink, and blue, as well as a non metallic red.
