Art Quilts Around the World

Film Noir, Vivian Kapusta

My piece is based on the only Film Noir that I recall seeing ... Hitchcock's film 'The Birds'
There is a frightening scene of children being chased by crows.
My background is printed on pale grey hand dye. I used a screen with thickened black paint and discharged with clear print paste. I wanted an indistinct, mysterious background. While on vacation, I hand stitched the background with running and loop stitches.

The crow was free motion stitched on canvas and appliqued, with a 3D on the wings. A few choice beeds and trinkets completed the design.
