Photo to stitch to encaustic

posted in: Blog | 0

Brighton photographer, Nick Ford, and I work together on occasion. He forwarded this lovely close up photo of a sculpture which is on the Brighton sea front. In order to understand the full sculpture, I have included a photo I took of it in it’s entirety. It is affectionately known as ‘the donut’.
I have shown the transition which I have taken it from his photo to textile stitching of the photo to an encaustic painting interpretation. I enjoyed this process of using different media.

    It is good to see public sculpture that is fun and can be enjoyed in different ways. Walking along Brighton seafront last weekend I saw young children climbing and sliding on a nearby piece of (sturdy) modern sculpture. Why not?
