Paola Zanda – Flight

The Myth of Icarus

Inspiration: I was always fascinated about history and mythology, and the first idea that came to me for the challenge ‘Flight’ is the Icarus flight.

Screenprinted using an engraved template hand carved by me, and acrylic colour.  Dyed cotton fabric using the shibori technique and Procion MX colors.  Machine and freehand embroidery. Machine-stitching with double transport and hand-stitched.
