“BLACK HOLE” an art quilt measuring 40cm square was made up as a tribute to the late cosmetologist Stephen Hawking whom wrote much about black holes.
This textile work represents my version of a “Black Hole” by seeking to create a feeling of depth and movement (gravitational pull) within a sparkling night sky.
This multi layered work has initially been stitched in a spiral shape. Various layers were subsequently cut back, decorative stitched and continuously beaded. Additional decorative stitch was added as with hand quilting mostly with a harlequin metallic thread.
Black ink and metallic flakes create the effect of a night sky which sparkles particularly well under light.
The work is now nicely framed for display purposes and glitters beautifully under lights.
