Benjamin Shine is a gifted British artist and sculptor who expresses his creativity using one of the most unlikely mediums – tulle fabric. He crafts images out of tool fabric using nothing more than a hot iron and his imagination. Benjamin has done quite a full abstract designs as well as full celebrity portraits. In an interview, here is what he said of his work: “The idea of ‘painting with fabric’ led to the development of this technique where the portrait image is created through the intricate pleating and pressing of a single length of tulle fabric. The technique aims to utilize the translucent qualities of the tulle fabric to generate various gradients, tones and textures."
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
