The Creative Hand

Fiber Wall Hanging

Created by Wen Redmond
The joy of creating, the mark of the artists hand formed the conception of this work. Pieces come together to create the whole, just as the steps to make any art may recede and advance in unspoken but conscious art making.

A photograph of an artist model's wooden hand printed on a substrate of digitally ready molding paste. Photograph was cut into segments and collaged on base of black silk noil and hand sewn with metallic thread. Scrim and silk organza medium lifts form outer edging. A row of cascading squares is accented with antique hook and eyes.
