ABSTRACT TEXTILE ART: SIGN SERIES


"Roundabout Ahead" in progress,  19"X 29"   Lori LaBerge  2016

There is a saying that from 30 feet a piece of art should grab your interest, from 3 feet it should tell a story and from 3 inches there should be interesting details to see. I'm hoping I met the challenge with this work.  The boldness definitely shows well from 30 feet and the arrows along with the white road lines allow the viewer to draw their own story from the piece.  The details can be seen below.


 Sari ribbon was added in the turquoise section for variety in texture.

 Large metal washers being sanded down so paint will adhere.


A hammered copper was chosen for the washers.  They will be stitched to the work when dry.

Try applying the 30-3-3 idea to works you see in museums and other venues and have a great day.
