Captive


Well , this is the fabric panel I posted teasers of a while back. It's either finished or I'm just done , one or the other. I've had it sitting on the table for days staring at it now , and I'm kind of leaning towards 'just done'. Kinda like it , kinda don't.
I did a lot of things I hadn't before , like actually burning it , which felt very optimistic on my part lol (took a picture then too , just in case we never saw it again). The background is layers and layers of things and I like that a lot - the hangy bits in front , not so much. But I wanted something to help the whole 'captive' theme along , so for now they stay.
Again , I apologize for my photo skills , I really tried. I took a LOT of pictures , and if I lost the reflection I lost focus , if I had the right colors I got reflection - I could whine endlessly but I'll leave it at that.

So my girl's now a pet of the Faerie - taken captive for her beauty and playful innocence , but at the same time made 'less-than' by that same captivity - silenced behind glass , her laughter heard no more , unless she's found once again by someone able to unravel the spell. . .dark , huh? What can I say , the Sidhe are a twisted breed. . .and the following is how the text on the manuscript reads.
Water Earth and Sky , sweet friend
You'll know , perhaps , or not again.
Forgotten in this bower home
Kin long lost , and all alone
Spirit sweet and laughter brite
Our bounty now , held close and tight.
Water Earth and Sky , sweet friend
Be your release upon the end
Linger here and sweetly dream ,
Cradl'd in these Faerie wings
Captured soul and image fair
Til one , perchance , does see you there.

OMG it is beautiful. And IMHO done too. The burning is just fabulous. I might have to invest in a soldering iron.

Eileen said...

Kim, this is wonderful!!!!! I love it. The colors, the "bits and pieces"....all I can say is WOW....

Kim said...

Kim this is fantastic, just fantastic. I think it is indeed very BT and very sidhe and very lovely. The poem is beautiful (you probably have read Stolen Child by Yeats). There is nothing I don't love (OK, I love everything, is that better?)about it. And use a wet sponge to clean the soldering iron, it works a charm.

Looks fabulous.

Earthdreamer said...

It's beautiful Kim.

I was a bit sad when I saw 'the fairy' though. She does look captured.

Maybe you can let her loose so she can play.

I meant to tell you a few of us from Paper Traders are at a stone art group if you're interested. http://www.flickr.com/groups/stone/pool/

You certainly know how to set the bar and even elevate it to the exceptional! Perfectly executed but what else should we expect from someone who is so insanely talented!

christygrant said...

I think this piece is magical and marvelous! You've got so many yummy layers and things happening with it. It seems to still be bothering you though. Have you considered just a tiny touch of gold around the mica over the girl image to bring it forward a bit? I think it's lovely. perhaps you should just mail it to me and let me study it a while...

Sherry G. said...

Like Kim, I too blew it up to see the detail. LOVE it!!

kim this piece of work is my all time fav. of yours. it is so delicate & sweet, yet strong in composition & tone. It's like a 'midsummer's night' forest floor, I am looking for Puk, between the leaves. Fabulous stuff, well done! Keron
