Scenes inspired by the Seashore (using Evolon) by – Alysn Midgelow-Marsden
Alysn is an accomplished freelance fine art textile artist, as well as a tutor and author. These beautiful pieces of work form part of her collection entitled ‘seam(i)stress’ and illustrate her love of the sea and shoreline around her home in New Zealand.
Alysn has used a variety of spray paints (car, furniture and art sprays) to colour the Evolon (the fabric element or base cloth seen in these images). By using shells as resists, she has created the impression of multiple shells on the beach and in some cases the shells have been re-applied to the surface.
In the example above, she has incorporated wire, driftwood and small bits of waste plastic, to highlight the problem of pollution in the sea and the environment in general.
