This is not your usual presentation of a quilt. I am exploring positive and negative spaces. Shadow plays an important part of the design – look at it straight on and you do not see much color. You see more of the negative space or background, move around and the colors of the fabric now come into view, interacting and moving. Physically interact with the piece and stick, stick your hands through it! Each face of the art quilt is different depending on how it is hung and viewed. The work can be hung in numerous ways and is very versatile – hang it diagonally, square, drape it, suspend it, wall mount it.
A sketchbook and sewing machine are used to sculpt my colorful fabric constructions. Bright colors and movement are predominant elements of the repetitive, open grid-like structures. Light and shadow are allowed in and create new patterns and colors.
I believe my chosen profession of Landscape Architecture influences my work. Landscapes themselves are constantly changing and evolving, never static.
The work reacts to its environment. Viewers can interact with each sculpture; slight movement causes the work to move, changing it ever so slightly. The work is rarely stagnant.
By traditional definition these sculptural, fabric constructions can be labeled quilts – layers of fabric held together by stitch. The hand-dyed cotton fabric along with non-traditional quilting materials is used such as wire mesh, grommets, mylar, velcro, metal rods, metal tubing, and wire.
