Image Statement: This piece is named for Euryale who in Greek mythology, was the second eldest of the Gorgons, the three sisters that have the hair of living, venomous snakes. Textiles that I have rescued are altered over the course of many days using a layering of techniques including rust and eco dying. Poufs are stuffed and then further rust dyed to add a sense of age and being one with nature. Extra texture and depth were added after the piece was assembled using thread and ink. I am interested in complexity, color and texture.
