TIF August

This months TIF theme caused me quite a lot of hard thinking. Boundaries, there are so many of them both physical, emotional and metaphysical. The Olympics has seen many surpassing their own sporting boundaries coming together to overcome territorial, religious, social, and political boundaries. The technical and scientific boundaries are continuously being overcome.
Art boundaries are also constantly being pushed, textile artists in particular merge tradition with experiemental.

With the latter in mind I decided that my boundaries would be the non-boundaries of the universe, of space of imagination and of the freeing boundaries of art.
So here is my postcard made from heat bubbled synthetic chiffon, fabric paper painted with acrylics and sprayed with interference paint, fme quilted and beaded. My universal circles are free to wander without the constriction of boundaries.
