The colours in this quilt took a long time to be.
The fabrics are rayons and cottons dyed with procion mx fibre reactive dyes.
Some are overdyed commercial prints.
They were hand stitched and embellished.
After stitching, everything was dyed again, this time red procion mx.
The layers of dye have made colours that are un-namable but for some reason, they touch us.
I photographed the crosses on the front of the quilt, as a way to say fare well.
It was sold just after the local art tour. For a full view of the entire quilt, please click here.
Art is not about beauty!
Art is about exultation.
Art is about absolute emotion.
Art is about self evident authenticity.
