Chantal Guillermet – Work in Progress
The theme was difficult to work with and finally I’ve chosen to work on a play on word : Work in Progress.
For me progress or progression represents something we tend to reach, something unfinished. That is why the printing on the background is incomplete and the quilting unfinished. For the same reason the embroideries on the biais are unfinished.
The drawings of the staircases represent a symbolique image of our progression in life, private or professional.
Material : hand-dyed fabric, Shiva paintsticks, fabric paint & acrylic paint, wood printing block, lana thread.
Technique : The background fabric was tea dyed first, then put shortly into a diluted magenta procion dye
Block printing with acrylic paint, stenciling with paintsticks for the words.
Mix of hand quilting and free motion quilting. Embroideries on the biais with lana thread
