Resolution

In March, I posted about the development of work from photos of high rise buildings in Vancouver, Canada. The last post stopped short of showing the final pieces that resulted as they were then yet to be finished. Now that our exhibition is over and I have them home again, here are the images that made the final cut:


They had a small amount of top stitching added as well as the black stitches at the corners holding the photos onto the backing paper. Unfortunately, this doesn't show up in the photos. The choice of stitches that are viable on photographs is limited: too much and the holes become perforations and everything starts to fall apart. This time, it took the form of a few long stab stitches to give textural contrast. 

And these below are some that did not then pass the test - but may yet see some minor modifications, that small amount of top-stitching, a mount and possibly a frame - and then even the light of day at some time in the future:
