Carnival to open at Visions Art Museum October 21, 2017

I am again proud to have my work appear with 36 other wonderful quilt artists at the Interpretations: Conversations show at the Visions Art Museum in San Diego, California. The show runs from October 21 through January 7, 2018.

This quilt is part of my Diagonal Thoughts Series in which I am exploring the shibori-like stripes made from water ripple photos.  I am treating them like surface designed fabrics which I cut in strips and rearrange in various ways.

Here is my Artist Statement:

The “natural stripes” created by the digital intensifying of photos of ripple lines in the water has been used to create fluid meandering shapes and juxtapositions. The created imagery suggests the wateriness of the original source even while creating another imagery reminiscent of the excitement of summertime, carnival and circus tents, and sudden summer downpours causing changes in human plans.
