George Washington Bridge, by K. Velis Turan
Velis Turan is moved by shadow, light and color as well as the patterns of nature and man as she “surface designs” her own fabrics. The art in this show is inspired by roads, buildings and bridges. Her techniques include screen printing, dying, painting, stamping, photo transfer, embroidery and beading. The surface of the work may explore all of these options, experimenting and engaging new techniques. She uses a sewing machine to “free-motion” stitch into the surface. Velis Turan says “For me, my pieces are not done until I have added the ‘thread strokes’. No other medium offers the interesting textures and depth as the art- designed, quilted surface.”
