When I saw the theme "Space" I come to think of the Swedish painter Philip von Schantz and his paintings of vases and bottles which fools your eye and give you a sense of mystery. So one of his paintings was my inspiration for this piece.
Below is a link to this painting.
To try to convey space I started to paint a white background fabric with Dye-na-Flow acrylic paint. When still wet, newspaper masks with the shapes of bottles were placed on top and then sun printed. The bottle shapes that developed in a lighter shade than the background were then machine quilted. A second layer of fabric bottle shapes were raw edged appliquéd and finally as a third layer there were some organza shaped bottles added on top.
The piece is framed with a narrow binding.
