Oceanside, CA. is a lovely coastal community located between San Diego and San Clemente and is quite a tourist attraction. Living there for many years I had the privilege of using the Main Library downtown where I have also exhibited my artwork. The City Hall building is part of the complex and was designed by a very talented and creative architect. I love all the angles and the shapes especially when the sun casts shadows all over the building. The details around the windows and the walkways are a joy for the eye.
I used many new techniques in creating this art piece. There are photographs printed on fabric which I arranged in a pleasing design. Two colors of fiber paper are cut into small pieces and fused to the background. The smaller green fiber pieces are representing palm trees. The whole design is sewn down with a layer of white tulle. I wanted to achieve an angular but still pleasing design showing my interpretation of the City Hall in Oceanside.
