Solitude at Last

This piece has been sitting around the studio unmounted until yesterday! I worked with the idea of the labyrinth as a place of solitude and the spiraling around of meditation that to me embodies the idea of the pursuit of solitude and peace. It is done with a combination of fabric and aluminum foil and the lining of a Benefil dog food package, a very nice flexible mylar and paper laminate. I made the spiral with a cardboard layered composition and then covered it with the aluminum foil, painted it, them removed the underlying cardboard before stitching it to the fabric pieces.
