Intrigue: Mixed Media Art

Fabric Wall Hanging

Sometimes an image intrigues you, captures you in its uniqueness and depth, in its interplay between rustic and refined, and holds you savagely in its dark arboreal beauty.  Photographer/artist Aga Farrell's mixed media creation above embodies all of this for me with its surreal melancholy interpreted as a melodious ode to nature.  This specific work is a textured visual beauty: a combination of embroidery, a unique photograph taken by her, and earthy fabrics and yarns.  It's intriguing and wildly imaginative with a rush of rustic nostalgia.
