Acrylic on Sewn Fabric

A university series that began as life-sized figurative paintings that morphed into contorted, figurative paintings that were painted on contorted fabrics. I would spend a day each week searching for patterned and plain fabrics of different textures and weights at the local fabric store. The rest of the week I would spend sketching, researching, and painting figures onto the found fabrics. Usually I would staple the fabric up on drywall, fold it, staple it, or sew it in a variety of ways around the rough sketch of a figure. This is a style I wish to get back to one day.
