I think his pigment could be as simple as fabric dye. If the fabric was primed with soda ash first this would work.
I think I’m more looking at developing photograms with cyanotype or solar fast but I do love the serendipity of these sort of works that harness the weather and time.

Thinking of the photography unit coming up and I saw this. Melissa Zexter embroiders on photographs. Looks like most of the photos are black and white and then the colour is added through embroidery.
I’m thinking of photograms or pinhole photographs transferred to fabric and then potential addition of colour with ink or embroidery.

The above work is like a drawing. Certainly achievable for me. I also think I need to be less anal about raw edges as seen below.
She also makes 3D sculptural work which I’m a bit interested in given that I’m going to do sculpture too this year.

I always like something to have a practical use too so I’m thinking of vessels. But I love the boxes above. A simple way of presenting what is essentially 2D work.
Saw an article about this guy in surface design mag.
Memory loss Japanese sashiko making do multi media including paper and textiles.
Even though his work doesn’t appeal all that much his themes and media are relevant.
