Force Field

Force Field is my second contribution to the challenge. It’s fused applique, regular applique, and acrylic paint on fusible web.
 
The symbolism is an exploration in progress — EIP
Doesn’t that sound better than work in Progress!
 
The wedjet eye is a symbol that has been with me for years. Before we moved across the continent from central Canada to the SW US I had an image of a wedjet carved into a wooden picnic table that came to me while I was having acupuncture treatment.
 
The dots and bright colors remind me of Mexican folk art. I usually stay away from natural/neutral tones but this batik is so beautiful that I bought a pack of fat quarters last time I was at JoAnne’s.
 
Up to now I have not used human figures much in my art — I sense this may change. The force field around the main figure resembles a Picasso-style head in profile, this was unintended but I could see it even before I fused the paint onto the fabric.
