Thanks so much, Silvia! I'm not familiar with the artist that you mention, but the technique sounds intriguing. If you can remember the name, please let me know.
Your description brought to mind a fabric artist who uses a technique where he quilts together several layers of differently-colored fabrics and then slashes through the top layers to reveal the colors underneath. I've seen some of his art-to-wear pieces in person, and they are incredibly beautiful. His name is Tim Harding: [link] .
