Chantal Guillermet – Artist style #4
CHAGALL N° 4 : Flowers
In Chagall’s work, flowers fly into the air and join the immaginary characters he likes to create. They are often flowers of the fields full of charm and elegance.
For this piece I composed a bouquet with the flowers I love: tulips and irises.
I used an old embroidered napkin for the background that I dyed. The bouquet is transferred onto the fabric with the monoprinting technique, which left small black traces on the background like on some of Chagall’s paintings.
The inside of the flowers was bleached and then reworked with Inktense pencils and metallic paint.
Free motion quilting in black for the bouquet, hand quilting for the background with a thread dyed at the same time as the background fabric.
The quilt is faced.
