Caribe Cottage l of 3 in the series of Caribe Cottage mixed media art weavings. Caribe Cottage l is slightly abstracted by clever use and placement of elements into my loom. Upcycled images are sliced, numbered, interlaced with my own hand dyed yarns and coordinating novelty yarns. I employ several weaving techniques to achieve the depth and fullness of texture, emulating profusion of colorsThe result is a lush, exhuberant expression of colorful homes in tropical environs.
Caribe Cottage l, Caribe Cottage ll, and Caribe Cottage lll are listed individually and also shown here as a triptych in the last image. The artworks are similar, related, yet the underlying imagery is unique to each one making them slightly different in size. I wove them on a loom I created specifically for this series so the spacing between threads is just so. Otherwise the imagery would be completely obscured.
