this is a screenprint design i am working on in print design. i've been somewhat interested in opium and so i designed a print with disguised motives of opium harvesting, opium pipes, and heroin surrounded by poppies and poppy pods. i tend to create conversational prints, even though this time i tried not to - i couldn't help myself :)
these are recent works that i completed for the juried fellowship exhibition at my school. i proposed to travel to iceland this summer to study the landscape for my work. each image is inspired by specific locations in iceland known for their stunning landscape that i had planned to travel to. i dyed the warped threads, hand wove the fabric and embroidered on the surface. the phrase "pad kallar" means "it calls" in icelandic. i know the images are terrible, so bare with me...the color washed out a lot, i swear they are actually more brilliant than this!
