Modernism and Slow art

Hundertwasser 1960

This weekend's workshop in Kingston seems to have come together on its own. Eva Hesse 1966

I'm teaching hand stitching with a modernist sensibility, based on archetypal symbols that are the basis for much of 50's and 60's art. Nettie Kenedy 1955 (a Gee Bend quilt)

I'll be showing these images on the first day.

  1. It's going to be fantastic, I just know!

    I have one of the Gee's Bend books - Architecture of a Quilt...one of my very, very favourites. I could go so far as to say it is the Gee's Bend Quilter's (from a book my mom brought home - she's a librarian - in the late 90's) that inspired me to make my first quilt, on my own anyway.

  4. I would love to hear your lecture and see your work in person. Maybe some day. We actually make it to Kingston once a year - in the summer.
