The Recombination

Dominie Nash’s “The Recombination”‘ is a series that began as experiments in monoprinting on fabric. Each completed work is a combination of two or more of the original prints: layered, cut through, collaged, and stitched together. The originals are retained but transformed into something new. Some larger fabric pieces incorporate rubbings of leaves, with scraps and experiments left over from making the cloth used in some of Nash’s older work. These “found” fabrics are rescued and recycled into new pieces.
