REFLECTION : Enhancing Depth and Texture within Felt

Using different stitches I have attempted to create depth within my felt and add height to certain aspects of it. I do not think they were successful as they still appear to be extremely flat, even with the different aspects of the felt accentuated through the stitching. They have began to look too much like the images from lent term in that they appear to depict texture as opposed to being textured themselves. They also have become to ornamental and I believe a major part of this is because the stitching is in ‘lines’. The lines of stitch cooperate with my sewing machine however I believe that for the work to fully become textured, they need to stray away from the very uniform nature of lines and the aspect of separation that comes along with them as a visual language. I need to throw myself back into nature and begin interpreting nature itself again instead of interpreting nature from already interpretations of nature.
