Here is my piece, “Lucky,” and an excerpt of my artist statement:
“…the artist takes otherwise repetitive technique and elevates it through a study of improvisational quilting and abstract expressionism — exploring the natural tension between free expression and traditionally domestic space both as to craft and creativity. Both spontaneous and beautiful, “Lucky” also satiates utilitarian need.”
I thoroughly enjoyed creating a piece out of textiles with a contemporary aesthetic while exploring how it affects my identity, my journey and roles I create as a woman and an artist.
The eleven artists in the show each use different mediums to explore the concept of ‘Precision and Pattern’ in their work.
