Obama Fabric Photo Portrait


Obama Fabric Photo Portrait

Originally uploaded by diana.bracy

To obtain this image, I used a photograph that was scanned into my computer. Batik and hand dyed fabrics were used to finish the Art. Thousands of small pieces were used in this process. The colors are from the fabric and not from paint, even though it appears to look like a painting!

This piece took two weeks to complete and I used cotton fabrics with fusibles. When I see this piece on my wall, it looks like it was made with clay. I can see what appears to be finger trails and marks. This image is leading me to a different type of art. It looks like a sculpture. The colors that were chosen were ony 12. original photo that I used This palette will be used again in another image, so check my page often.

Blue ridge mountain waterfall

This image is the Blue Ridge Mountains waterfall in Virginia. When I heard about the tragic news at Virginia Tech, I remembered that I had a photograph in black and white. I selected blues, greens, silver, white and black as the main colors to try to recreate it with fabric. I was unsure if I could capture a realistic water scene. The piece is made from small strips, rectangles and squares of fabric. It took about 400 hours to complete. Each hour that I worked on this wall art, I had a serene sense of calmness. While listening to the tragic news, I was making this beautiful work of art and feeling the senseless loss of our children gone forever. The water seemed to flow and I imagined listening to the sounds as it passed over the rocks. It was like free spirits making a way through the waters. When I stood away from the piece it really did capture the entire scene and made it come alive. It is breath taking. It measures 30′ x 40″.

Rat Pack – Frank-Dean-Sammy

This recent addition of my Gallery of Mosaic Photo Art Quilts is smaller in size of 15″ x 17 1/2″. This piece took less time than my others, however, there were more tiny pieces needed to achieve the details in the images. You may need to step away from the computer for better viewing. Dean Martin is smoking a cigarette. Can you see it?

I tried to use neon colors for a different look. This one may need to be in the larger format. I will add that to my re-do list.

Muhammed Ali 17 1/2″ x 18″

This piece was completed in 60+ hours. There were many 1/4 inch pieces in various areas of his face. I used my usual medium of cotton fabric, fusible and tricot. The art has been sprayed with acrylic and UV protectant spray. This reduces the chance of fading from sunlight.

This is a close up, so you may need to stand way from your computer monitor to see him clearer.
