Last weekend at The Crow Barn (the weekend between the two weeks of class), we each had to do a short presentation of our work for Nancy Crow and our fellow classmates. You were given the option of bringing your actual quilts with you, or you could do a digital presentation. I opted for digital and I thought that I would share the slides from my presentation with you.
But first: I broke the rules.
I don't have a huge back catalog of quilts. So, I decided to put together a presentation that showed my artwork on paper next to my works in fabric. The works were not inspired by each other -- at least not consciously. Rather, I paired them in order to provide context for my fellow classmates -- who have never seen my artwork.
Above: The fabric collage (right):
- reminds me of the inspiration wall (bottom left) in my studio.
- contains a monoprint (the black and white image) -- There are monoprints on my inspiration wall.
- contains a thread "sketch" (the girl with the bubbles around her) which reminds me of my sketchbook (top left).
- contains several "lacy" prints which remind me of the paper snowflakes and lace image on my inspiration wall.
Above: In some ways this Modern Quilt (left) is not at all my style. But when I hold it up to some of my work on paper (right) I can see that I do sometimes work in plain color fields and geometrics.
What do you think? Can you answer my question: What is the intersection of my work on paper and my work on fabric?
I'll be sharing more from The Crown Barn next week -- you can look forward to week two day-by-day!
Thanks for stopping by!
