pavots

Gwenn Seemel
Bloom
2015
acrylic on eyelet
15 x 19 inches

This painting is on eyelet, that embroidered cotton that’s sometimes used for the bed ruffles. I had bought the material in 2007 to use in this painting to call attention to the fact that the heart on the sleeve really was sewn on. Back then, I was more into painting on very textured material—in fact, it was around the same time that I prepped the material for this piece.
