Els Mommers – S
Spotted Eagle Ray
Inspiration: The beautiful underwater world surrounding our island.
In this series I want to show the beautiful fishes that lives and the coral that grows, in the tropical Caribbean sea.
The background for the sea is made of a piece of ice-dyed fabric and the ocean bottom is hand painted fabric. The spotted eagle ray I painted with acrylic paint on satin and appliqued on the background. Coral is made from scraps of tyvek, lutrador with puff-paint, transfer painted lutrador and skins made with pouring medium and fluid acrylic paint. The sea is covered with blue organza and pieces of open woven silver blue synthetic fabric. This material has also been used to cover the coral at the bottom of the sea. To create a little more depth I added some green painted tree bark plants
The whole piece is machine quilted with variegated polyester thread and finished with a facing.
