Balinese Dancer

This mixed media Pictorial Art Quilt explores the possibilities of "raising the surface." The relief elements are studies from a book by Maggie Grey. The portrait was painted on prepared canvas using oil paint, then cut out and appliqued onto the background. Materials used were: canvas, oil paint, plastic canvas, twine, PVC glue, tissue paper, oil paint sticks, foam board, peltex, beads and commercial fabrics.
