Canvas Me

A few weeks ago I finally made some handmade canvas prints of my work. It’s an idea I’ve had for a while but I was never quite sure how I wanted to do it.

A few months ago I found this great natural weave cotton at the Turkish Market here in Berlin. I didn’t have a plan for what to do with it, but I knew I had to have it when I saw it (craft stores, hardware stores and fabric markets can be a very dangerous thing for a natural-born experimenter like me…)

A few weeks ago I finally bought something I’ve wanted to play with for a long, long time: a stapler gun (being kept most definitely out of the hands of my children!) I decided to then staple the natural cotton onto canvas frames and add a photograph with a transfer and voile. The results can be seen in this post.

I only have two of the canvas pieces listed in Augenblick right now, but many more are still to come and to be made (especially with a triangular canvas I’m very excited about playing around with…) I have a big editing job to do over the next few weeks in my “real world” job so things might be slow in progressing, but definitely stay tuned.
