This incredible fabric sculpture is created from silk dupioni and digitally printed silk. It's massive size is 38 x 33 easily becoming the focal point of any room. Yards of Dupioni silk was used to create the center portion of sculpted fabric using the technique of shibori and dyed using Cochineal. Shibori is a labor intensive process that uses heat to manipulate fabric wrapped around objects. This sculpture took over 50 hours and 2 1/2 years of study to create, it also has 4 other "sister" sculptures. It is a landscape of shapes that are reminiscent of the artist's South Florida reefs. This piece is mounted and ready to hang. Simple dusting with a clean, dry rag is the only cleaning requirement.
