Bloody Yell European 4-in-1 Chainmaille Painting

 

$4900

 

Over 22,500 jump rings in 14 colors of enameled copper and brass have been woven together one by one in the European 4-in-1 Chainmaille pattern.

"Bloody Yell" is my tribute to Edvard Munch's "The Scream." It's always been a visual favorite of mine and it's history of being stolen adds to my interest. I created the pattern (without the aid of pattern-making software), cut all the jump rings with a saw (all 22,500+ of 'em!), and wove each ring individually into this European 4-in-1 chainmaille painting. The finished chainmaille is suspended in an open-front wood shadow box on a metal rod.

Chainmaille: 13" x 17"*
Outside Frame Dimensions: 16" x 20"*

Ol' Blue Eye European 4-in-1 Chainmaille Painting

 

---SOLD---

 

Email me to inquire about a custom order.
 
Over 4700 jump rings in five shades of enameled copper have been woven together one by one in the European 4-in-1 Chainmaille pattern.
 
"Ol' Blue Eye" is my tribute to one of my favorite artists--M. C. Escher. This is my adaptation of his mezzotint "Eye" he created in 1946. While Escher used shades of grey, I put my own mark on it by using three shades of blue with black and silver colored copper rings. I created the pattern (without the aid of pattern-making software), cut all the jump rings with a saw, and weaved each ring individually into this European 4-in-1 chainmaille inlay. The chainmaille painting is suspended in an open-front black leather shadow box and completed with a 6-LED art light.

Chainmaille: 6" x 7" 
Outside Frame Dimensions: 9" x 11"
 
Here is a video to show the movement of the chainmaille.
I ran a wooden dowel behind "Ol' Blue Eye" and you can see
the fluidity of all the rings moving independently.
