"Elizabeth Aunty", 2020

Hand needle felted on wet felt portrait using wool on top of Sari silk. 

The imagery was sourced from a photograph in Melissa's archive. A woman is shown sitting on a pink chair in between two similar but empty chairs. She glances over her shoulder with her profile facing towards the viewer. The abstracted background of grey and white could be read as clouds or an outdoor scene. The pop of the orange dress with the pink chairs provides a nice contrast against the muted background. 

Please note: The last photo displays a mock up of the work framed. The work can be utilized both framed or non-framed. Please allow up to 8 weeks lead time due to Covid-19 to receive the framed piece. If purchasing with no frame, there is no additional lead time and we will ship that week.
