Debra Goley Art show: Explosions Jan 30,2016

Current work from my Explosions Series

On display now through August 28th in Surprise AZ.              



This week I am putting the finishing touches on the last of twelve  fiber arts in my series titled EXPLOSIONS.  Weird, as it’s not really exploding fireworks or soda pop taking flight to the ceiling after a shaken can made by a purposeful teenager in my house. No, this is how I am evolving; I searched a lot this past year and when I signed up for a “series” online class with Katie Pasquini Masoput, I had no idea how this would pull from me all I had to give and give me exactly what I needed to “let go”. Notice how I didn’t say, “go”.

I have put pen to paper, sketched a few crazy works and developed them along with the 12 others, spending hundreds of hours to self-teach the art of collaging with a stitch rather from glue. Its crazy therapy as you tug and pull and stretch the limits on what seems at first glance one broadcloth…but it’s really SO many hundreds of pieces cut up, assembled and sewn together to portray your first thought or idea on your sketch pad. It does evolve and it does take on a life of its own but it’s my world and it feels comforting being able to pull from within and let it all out to share with you! Enjoy!

  1. Hi Debra,

    I love the “Palms Up” piece. Your layering and stitching look great. Do you still have the original artwork that inspired this work? Is at a gallery? I would like to see them side by side to see the progression.

    Thank you for sharing – you have done a beautiful job and Mom is proud I am sure to see you working in fabric this way.

    • Hello Marci!
      Great to hear from you and your vote of confidence and Mom. This means so much coming from you. I sold the original Acrylic painting artwork and painted another recently and its gone too 🙂 I will post them side by side because it does show the progression. Thank you for showing how to cut the was a lot of back and forth but I loved the process!
