Barbara James Uses Photos, Stitch, Burlap, and Roving to Give Us an Impression of the Tides.


To make Carried Away 1, I took an original photograph of a downed tree and manipulated it on the computer and had it on cotton sateen. After cutting up the fabric I then collaged and stitched my impression of the tides into a triptych mounted burlap. The representation of the tide on the bottom of the piece is made from the wool batting that was pulled from the back of work and then enhanced with wool roving that I felted onto the batting.
