g. roslie’s ModScape series - ‘desert road’

each one-of-a-kind ModScape textile art is conceived as a visual experience of a natural landscape found wandering the earth, memorized in the mind’s eye or by photograph & re-created in a minimalist, modern-abstract fashion onto a textile art form combining my love of natural places, natural dyeing, modern design & art.

: desert road - an abstract modern expression of sunset drive on a dirt road through a desert landscape where the skies turn every shade of pink & the last golden glow lights up the sky. interesting note: the pink color on this modscape was obtained using extracts of the cochineal insects which live on the cacti & has historically been the natural dye source for producing pink, red & purple shades on cloth.

size: 14” w x 22” t (magnetic frame width 16”)

the modscape textile art series are made from naturally hand dyed linens and/or vintage remnant linens. the reverse side is solid linen or muslin. the magnetic open wooden frame lends a beautiful structure to the textile art while keeping it tactile & accessible.

from the maker g. roslie:

Please note that all of my goods are hand made using recycled, vintage and/or new eco, sustainable, organic materials. I spend countless hours putting my love into each piece I create starting from hand picking the fabric, hand washing & drying, dyeing, designing, drafting & cutting the pattern to sewing, stitching, ironing....  natural dyeing is a very lengthy process involving days to weeks of preparation starting with scouring, organic soy milk curing & finally immersing in the precious botanical dye bath. the results are always surprising & the inherent beauty of natural dyed textiles are the nuances of coloration that give each dyed piece it's one of a kind, unique characteristic.  naturally dyed textiles are gentle on the environment whereby eliminating the cocktail of toxins associated with synthetic dyeing processes but it is an incredibly involved & time consuming process.  naturally dyed fibers also fade with time & exposure to the sun can quicken the fading process so it's good to be mindful of hand washing separately & sparingly with like colors with very gentle ph neutral detergents in cold water & drying naturally out of direct sunlight.  with vintage or recycled materials, there are inherent markings that some may consider "flaws" ~ I personally find that it's these beautiful little "scars" that give each piece it's own special character, imparting a uniqueness that I could not create with a perfect pristine brand new piece of fabric. I love the perfection of imperfection and I don't discard fabrics due to these "scars". Please keep this perspective in mind if you are thinking of purchasing any of my goods.
