Strata III, Autumn

I'm nearly caught up! This is especially a good thing because the weekend will be another chance to work in solid, significant blocks of time. I'm on a big deadline to produce enough for the solo exhibition at Francis Marion University. The show is to have two bodies of work: my "In Box" series and my "Strata" series. Since I've sold almost all the "In Box" pieces I've made this year, I've been quite nervous.

I hadn't really started the "Strata" series. Strata I in currently on display in the 50th annual national juried show in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Strata II was a commission for DP Professionals. I really went out on a limb promising this body of work, but last weekend was quite productive. I managed to spend almost 20 hours in my studios and came up with Strata III (Autumn); Strata IV (Spring); Strata V (Summer), and Strata VI (Winter).

Above is Strata III (Autumn) which looks quite a bit like Strata I. The new pieces, however, are much bigger. All four made last weekend measure approximately 26" x 16" (which my mathematically inclined husband Steve figured out to be 41 x 66 cm). Below is a detail image.

All four pieces are sewn onto linen mat board, have been photographed digitally and in slide format, and are waiting for Steve to build the liners and frames.

IS this on dissolvable? The layers are facinating!
