Diana Vincent – Contrast – Choices
Whilst out walking in the bush just recently, we came upon the wreck of an old 1938 Oldsmobile. This set me to thinking about the contrast between the fuel guzzling old vehicles that we used to drive, when resources were plentiful, and the more economical ones that we drive today, now that we are more aware of the impact they have on our land.
I have chosen to contrast this old vehicle with one of the most economical cars available today, the Smartcar.
The Oldsmobile is photo transfer and the Smartcar is buttonhole applique, adding to the contrast with older and newer techniques. The background is painted and the foreground has hand dyed scrim. Finished off with machine quilting.
