Survey books can sometimes be overwhelming, but when this one arrived yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised. The 1000 images are well laid out, and are accompanied only by the artist's name and country. The simplification worked well.
Six continents are represented and my eyes are opened! I was especially interested (and proud) to see Canada represented so often. (17 artists)
This is just one of many images of Marjolein Dallinga's felt works. She's from Canada. Ulrieke Benner was also well represented in the book. She's from Canada Anni Hunt is from Canada
The art quilt category took up 302 of the 1000 spots and these artists from the USA stand out for me. Some are familiar names, others I appreciated for the very first time. I singled these out because of their use of hand dyes in a pared down aesthetic. I am inspired by their work.
Fulvia Boriani Luciano I have three quilts included in the book. Pictured here is Emily Carr Visited Me, a piece I made in 2005. Gina M. Brown invited me to participate by email. She and her sister Sandra Salamony are the co-authors.
Thank you Gina, it is an honour to be included.
