g. roslie’s ModScape series - ‘silver falls’

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 for both myself and the viewer.

: silver falls - an abstract modern expression of one of the many beautiful waterfalls seen during a hike through the iconic, magical silver falls state park in oregon state.

You Reading This: Stop

Don't just stay tangled up in your life.

Out there in some river or cave where you

could have been, some absolute, lonely

dawn may arrive and begin the story

that means what everything is about.

So don't just look, either:

let your whole self drift like a breath and learn

its way down through the trees. Let that fine

waterfall-smoke filter its gone, magnified presence

all through the forest. Stand here till all that

you were can wander away and come back slowly,

carrying a strange new flavor into your life.

Feel it? That's what we mean. So don't just

read this—rub your thought over it.

Now you can go on.

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.
