REFLECTIONS  AND REFRACTIONS - works by Trudy Thompson

On display currently in our gallery.  Thompson writes, "I am drawn to rhythms and patterns found in nature: ripples of water, swirls of clouds, shapes of flower buds, feathered wings of birds. I create my finely marbled silk by a process referred to as hydro-printing. After creating a viscous solution which sits over night in a bath, I carefully position drops of different colored acrylic paints on to the “sized” surface. Concentric circles expand and contract. The final pattern results after the drops of paint have been manipulated with a stylus or comb. Then with the help of an assistant a large panel of habatoi silk is positioned over the bath and lowered to gently rest on the surface, then slowly removed before rinsing. The layered patterns for my pieces result from creating a second or third bath with a different surface design each time… over a period of days!"
