Black Smoker | Abstract Flowing Quilled Artwork

Black Smoker | Abstract Flowing Quilled Artwork is a new piece I created using some innovative multi-media techniques. The original thought was to try combining two of my greatest loves: quilling and flow art. To achieve the effects seen in this piece I had to come up with some new techniques that created the flowing, uneven wave pattern seen below.

Paper likes to be coiled and paper likes to be straight. It’s easy to make sweeping lines and spirals and traditional quills, but it’s more difficult to make it look like billowing smoke. This is where I had to play around a bit. After some trial and error I found a way to consistently make the flowing wave shape. I really like the results because the paper lines greatly enhance the underlying ink flows. I think that this is one my all-time favorite pieces – partly because it’s blue – and partly because it represents something totally unique. I enjoy the fact that I’ve never seen this type of art before. I’m not sure if it’s been done, but if it has I haven’t seen it. I have more of these projects planned out for the future, one of which will be an abstract version of the layered rocks in the Grand Canyon. Another which will be more botanical in nature with lush greens and sweeping “blades’ of grass and other foliage. They should all be very unique and give me a chance to explore mixing these two types of media while satisfying my love of the abstract. I don’t want people to see the same thing when they look at it. I want it to make their minds work and grasp at new concepts.  You can see the second in my hybrid flow series (Red Jupiter) here.

Now available on my Etsy shop. Comes with a white 11×14 box frame.
