An art quilt for the viewer who is a lover of the Philly landscape of high-rise buildings.
This was inspired by a beautiful spring day of walking around the Rittenhouse neighborhood. I took these photos with my iPhone and printed them onto prepared for printing silk fabric sheets. The ink is pigment ink which is virtually fade proof. The printed silk was bordered with dupioni silk and then appliqued onto a hand dyed cotton background. The work was then quilted, faced and mounted onto black painted stretched canvas.
The blending of the blues, greys of the photographs with the blues and greens of the surrounding hand dyed cotton and dupioni silk pulls the whole work together.
A handsome addition to your home or office decor.
Digitally printed silk, cotton.
