Gobsmacked - Wall Hangings

Featured In Barbara Archer Gallery, Atlanta, GA

Item details

The term Gobsmacked originates from the (primarily) British slang for head-slapping, absolutely amazed, totally speechless, astonishment. I like to initiate a connection between the viewer and I; in this case via an interactive, detailed, colorful, light-hearted, romp-of-a-sculpture that hopefully stops the viewer in their tracks for an enjoyable, closer look and play. Materials: VELCRO® brand hook tape and VELTEX ® brand loop fabric, thread, paint, vinyl, digital image transfers from artist photos. Technique: Free Motion Stitching, quilted, digital image transfer, painted
