Textile Trees by Lesley Richmond

Canadian fiber artist Lesley Richmond has constructed a series of textile artworks that emulate the natural light and texture of forests. She photographs the trees and prints the images in cotton and silk. She then eliminates selected background areas using a chemical process, leaving the structural image of trees, before painting the images with metal patinas and pigments to create the illusion of organic decay.
