Els Mommers – Artist style #4
ARTIST STYLE: JOAN MIRO #4
FLOWERS AND MOUSE
Every now and then Joan Miro uses some kind of abstract flowers in his work and that is what I choose to use for this piece and like Miro I repeated again the symbols he uses most: eye, moon and stars.
Triangles sometimes also occur and when making the composition it turned out that two triangles and a small circle suddenly took on the shape of a mouse. I don’t think a mouse ever appeared in his work but for me it fits well in this piece.
The background is hand painted and all shapes are fused and machine apppliqued , often with a cordon stitch. Echo quilted and finished with a facing.
