Design Concept

This piece began as a composition of organic shapes arranged on a painted background fabric.  The organic shapes were cut from fabric dyed in a gradation of shades from red to green.  These shapes were then stitched over with various colors of thread.  The finished composition reminded me of a microscopic photograph of a primitive plant.
