Squiffed Stitches - Artist Book

Squiffed Stitches (sold)

This piece is an Artist Book made out of plexi glass.  I was fascinated by the luminosity you could get from "backlighting" the clear plastic.  It positively glowed!  But - I didn't want the color to be perfect - so I used layers of "art" tissue paper and allowed the pieces to overlap and introduce some depth into it. Still - there wasn't enough "action" going on for my taste, so I drilled a million holes and stitched with surgeon suture thread in a casual way to create another layer of interest.
