Bull Kelp and Lichen Silk Scarf
This piece is one of a series of silk scarves that are derived from photos taken on Haida Gwaii of flora and fauna, such as moss, seaweed on the beach, and in this case, bull kelp and beach pebbles blended with reindeer lichen. After a long careful process using computer software, they are then digitally printed onto silk. The changes made to the photographs are intended to express the inherent beauty found in details of selected natural forms. I chose silk twill because it shows the colours and details so well, and can be either hung on the wall, or be worn. Wearable art!
