Paola Zanda – Horizon
Camargue’s abstract horizons
My first work for fifteen by fifteen was inspired by the ponds of Camargue. It’s a France region that we love a lot and every year we spend our holidays there. The landscape is impressive and gives us strong inspiration and big feelings of peace. So I choose, for the horizon challenge, to translate the Camargue landscapes in abstract mode and using the screen printing technique throughout.
I worked with screen printing in layers, using a screen without impression and one with personal design; I used Procion MX colors with thickener and bleaching paste. The composition is made with various screen prints assembled and quilted with transparent thread by machine.
Used materials: satin cotton, cotton wadding, transparent thread for machine quilting, Procion MX colors, thickener,
