Medium: turkey eggshell and aniline dye
Story: This piece is a pattern inspired by elements of my Four Suits mandala; a pen and ink illustration I created for a deck of playing cards. I thought it would be quite beautiful to twist and turn the design to accentuate the natural pattern of the eggshell and mapped out the “roads” accordingly. Each element of the design carries forward to the next- something I try to accomplish both with color and shape leaving a feeling of connection throughout. Like most of my designs, the color choices are bold in order to demand attention to the piece despite standing at only 3″ tall.
This is the first artist proof of this design. More info to follow through the month of September.
