g. roslie’s ModScape series - ‘presence’

each one-of-a-kind ModScape textile art is conceived as a visual experience of a natural landscape found wandering the earth, memorized in the mind’s eye or by photograph & re-created in a minimalist, modern abstract fashion onto a textile art form combining my love of natural places, natural dyeing, textiles, modern design & art. my aim is to create a sense of peace, calm & contemplative reflection through the work i do both for myself as the maker and you as the viewer.

: presence - an abstract modern expression of a view of cerro pedernal the beloved mesa georgia o’keeffe painted countless times throughout her life. i was so struck with the quiet yet immensely powerful presence of pedernal & surrounding vista & felt georgia’s spirit very grounded, present & alive while taking in this scenery.

cast a shadow on the sky
sun will hug the moon quietly
over the rainbow and the raindrops
moon rests in his arms silently... from the poem elipse by lady grace

dims: 54” x 68” (magnetic solid oak frame sold separately, please choose option during check out)

all ‘modscape’ textile art series are made from naturally hand dyed linens and/or vintage remnant linens. the reverse side is solid linen or muslin. modern, minimalist solid single oak or walnut magnetic frame can be custom made for this particular piece & is available for purchase separately, please inquire via email if interested.

please note that all of my goods are hand made using recycled, vintage and/or new eco, sustainable, organic materials. i spend countless hours putting my love into each piece i create starting from hand selecting the fabric, hand washing, drying, dyeing, designing, drafting & cutting the pattern to sewing, stitching, ironing....  natural dyeing is a very lengthy process involving days to weeks of preparation starting with scouring, organic soy milk curing & finally immersing in the precious botanical dye bath. the results are always surprising & the inherent beauty of natural dyed textiles are the nuances of coloration that give each dyed piece it's one of a kind, unique characteristic.  naturally dyed textiles are gentle on the environment whereby eliminating the cocktail of toxins associated with synthetic dyeing processes but it is an incredibly involved & time consuming process.  naturally dyed fibers also fade with time & direct, prolonged exposure to the sun can quicken the fading process so it's good to be mindful of hand washing separately & sparingly with like colors with very gentle ph neutral detergents in cold water & drying naturally out of direct sunlight.  naturally dyed textile art should be hung away from direct sunlight. as with vintage, recycled or repurposed materials, there are inherent markings that some may consider "flaws" ~ i personally find that it's these beautiful little "scars" that give each piece it's own special character, imparting a uniqueness that i could not create with a brand new piece of fabric. i love the perfection of imperfection and i don't discard fabrics due to these "scars". please keep this perspective in mind if you are thinking of purchasing any of my goods.
