    About The Work

    "Watermelon Tourmaline" honors an actual precious stone revered for its impressive ombré that shifts from green to an incredible pink.  Like the best of Lizz Aston's work she embraces an anonymous textile pattern, such as a hand-made lace doily, and then manipulates it digitally before creating a new contemporary descendant. These transformed and augmented patterns are then hand-cut on fine Japanese Kozo paper (aka mulberry paper) which are then painted, stained or dyed. In this work Aston masterfully creates a color scale that begins with a dense jade green followed by lime and pear which flow into a soft tangerine that arrives in the center of a juicy peach/coral pink. To heighten the form's impact Aston elevates the cut-out with a structure of pins creating dramatic shadows.
