Dark and Moody Midnight Wave Wire Crochet Wall Art

Close up detail of meticulously hand-crocheted stitch work of Midnight Wave by Studio Deanna

The longer I hang out with my art work in the studio space, the more ideas I have to make changes, updates, and improvements to each piece. As the sun moves around the studio, streaming through the windows throughout the day, my work catches and reflects different light. I work to see how far I can push each piece, how many iterations from a single work can be created. Midnight Wave is a perfect example of my process.

Previous Iteration

Midnight Wave was originally an unframed wire work piece first shown at my solo show, INTERVAL, as a piece attached directly the wall at Launch Pad Gallery. It looked nice but I always felt it wasn’t a complete piece.

Choosing to add the abstract wire crochet art work to a solid panel piece allows the shadows to be a part of the same unit instead of relying on a specific solid wall color to see these shadows. Making both the artwork and its shadows into a single work of art.

So what do you think? Does the shiny black anodize copper work on the matte black painted panel? How do you like the deep turquoise wool, cotton, and silk fiber against its dark and moody background? It’s an F8 panel sized 39cm high x 46.5cm x 2cm (15 3/8″ high x 18 1/4″ x 1 1/8″.)

It’s available at my shop at SaatchiArt, price includes shipping.
