Paired pieces, red group
This is the next in the series of paired artworks, where I take a concept and render it in two different media, so as to be led by what the medium needs to do with the concept. Here it's a pastel painting paired with a miniature tapestry.
with a closeup of the tapestry.
As you see, different things happen in the narrative of each one, largely because the medium wants a different thing! the dark streak running down the left of the tapestry, an echo of the dark streak in the pastel, is in fact fur from my kitty Duncan, spun and woven into the piece. He points out that cats are an artist's best friend, great studio company,and now even donating materials to the work in progress.
