I realized the last couple of Friday’s I have written about my work. In Now What? I wrote about trying to figure out a new work direction. In Learning to Paint I wrote about my efforts to start over painting in a new/old way. In response to some questions about my “old” work, I thought I would show some of it here. These paintings are from the textile-inspired “Silk Road” series completed in 2013/2014.
I showed these two pieces in an earlier post. These three pieces were inspired specifically by the vivid, saturated colors of Indian silk sarees.
In these two pieces you can see the influence of Asian batik and ikat techniques and also the use idigo dyes in these textiles.
You can see more of my “old work” at melaniemillar.com.
Thanks for taking a look. I hope I have “new work” to show you soon.
