Pigmented overbeaten abaca fibers mixed with pigmented cotton fibers were amalgamated into this unique piece using a pouring and pressing method.  The background is a combination of molding paste and acrylic paint which was applied to a mat board for random textural qualities.  The surface allows the paper to float over the background while the dark color shows through the sheer parts of the piece.  'Textures' took approximately 12 hours to complete.  Because the piece is not perfectly flat, a shadow box frame is recommended.
