Aged Psychedelic #6

Jean M. Judd



hand stitched thread on hand rust pigmented textile

17" x 14""

The Aged Psychedelic series is the starting point of my exploration of transferring the marbling process to textiles. This series of ten pieces uses airbrush paint as the dye to create the marbled surface design. I have found that the heaviness of the airbrush paint changes the hand of the textile ground and makes my signature dense hand stitching more difficult to achieve. These experimental pieces are smaller compared to most of my usual work.

Aged Psychedelic #6 continues my exploration of using the geared drawing tool, Wild Gears, for designing my hand stitched designs directly onto the artwork. The airbrush paint coloration features some olive green, yellow, grey, and blue. Up close inspection reveals delicate changes in color in the marbled ground. The hand stitched design highlights the marbled background in this piece and enhances the feeling of fireworks when viewed in different orientations.

This piece is designed to be displayed in a horizontal or vertical orientation and will be spectacular paired up with several of the other pieces in this series for a collage display.
