This piece is inspired by a particular individual, a pearl within a swirling sea.

The base layer is calico with watery acrylic paint added. I then printed the entire surface using a specially made tessellating linocut before colouring the whole thing with spray paint. I picked out some of the design in embroidery and added layers of sheer fabrics and black threads to the edges.

I spent some time planning the piece and exploring design options.
