Chicago - Original Textile Artwork (SOLD)

Chicago - Original Textile Artwork (SOLD)


: Available

A city of colour!!!! I've recreated the impressive towers of lakeside Chicago with vibrant colour and pattern! I love vintage prints and this piece gave me the opportunity to showcase a few favourites (including my stash of vintage Liberty remnants).This vibrant cityscape is filled with colour, texture AND pattern!  I love vintage prints and this piece gave me the opportunity to showcase a few favourites.  Instead of shiny grey skyscrapers, I've added joyful patterns filled with quirky detail. I found a picture of Chicago with a hot air balloon which gave me all the artistic licence I needed to add one!

I decided to do 'Chicago' as this piece is part of the 'Show Time' collection and it sent me on a mission to interpret this city in my own style. The musical itself was set in the jazz age and is based on a 1926 play of the same name about a reporter and the crimes and criminals she reported on.  A story of corruption  and the concept of the ‘celebrity criminal’.  Rather than focus on the gangsters, I’ve tried to capture a cosmopolitan lakeside city known for its amazing architecture and impressive towers. 

Check out all the images to see the piece in full.  The square image is a close up of the work. You can zoom in any of the images to see the piece in more detail.

This framed original measures 25 x 34" and is framed in my signature white wooden frame with wide wooden mount.
