Octopus Garden


This piece is composed of many painted cut-outs that I glued to artist's board producing multiple layers.  I cut some patterns into the board creating even more depth.  For the web, I used a large needle and pliers to sew colored thread into it (there's hundreds of knots on the back).  

When viewed in person, one can see that the octopus head is actually composed of a village that

shrouds it.
