In the Beginning



Hi this is my piece for the "Text" theme.  The background piece of cloth is a piece that I feel looks like the creation of the universe.  Next I printed two different layers of The Lord's Prayer in "text" speak.  On top of this I stenciled the beginning of John's Gospel and then I tied it all together through three layers with thick perle thread.

Preachers often say "The text for today's sermon" and that is where the rest rolled from.

  2. A very thought provoking piece Ali and it's lovely, I particularly like the subtlety and depth of the colouring
    Well done

  3. Great impact. I love the layered text. Are the edges left raw to reflect the theme of the beginning.? I agree with you Ali that the colours suggest the beginning of the universe.

  4. Yes Irene, I felt somehow to edge this piece would detract from "the beginning" I am using these challenges to experiment with techniques and thoroughly enjoying myself!

  5. Glad I had read it correctly, it is not always easy to get the full impact of peoples' work when one is looking at it online.
