Patchwork Quilt 20" wool and silk on poplar dowels
Patchwork Quilt is inspired by the women makers in my world. I grew up with artistic maker grandma, aunts and uncles. Their quilts and creativity inspire me daily to create from my heart. This gorgeous mandala is rich with texture and color including beautiful hand dyed silks, wools, and a little sparkle. It looks best under direct light so all the glimmer can shine!
I love to play with the tension of colors like harmonizing in music the pull away from each other and unexpected color combinations bring a richness and vibrancy like life itself. I particularly enjoy allowing a color palette to fully express itself in gradations and juxtaposition. The art of mandala weaving allows me to enjoy both symmetry and asymmetry, to play with light, space and dimension. This three dimensional art will last for generations with proper care.
