|left is my open heart, right is longing cloth side a|
clouds of pale spaces
similar to nature's open horizon views
full of small marks that distract just the right amount
|left is Bidwell, right is my open heart|
and so does the mind
bouncing and leaping from memory to future desires
our inner world
|the cloud in me|
|cloud of time|
caress me' they say
touch helps us get to the dream world inside
the unique but repetitive marks touch the eye
is the process of making it
each of the pieces went through several experiences
to eventually arrive at simplicity

having holes cut
|earth and air|
some several times
this to embed their texture
and give them the beauty of
aged quilted cloths

For those who live close enough, I hope that you will find time to visit the work in person.
The show looks glorious--wish I were within range of Toronto!
We feel by looking too and that will have to suffice 'cause I can't make it up to Toronto - but,OH these are stunning.
Oh wondrous work! How fortunate those in Toronto who visit, who look, who see, and who feel. What an experience to make the pieces, and what an experience to encounter them.
What a magnificent, magical work.
The slow and patient weaving between the thread of the fabric and the thread of your inner world is an invitation for everyone to connect with his inner world. Thank you for the gift of such beauty !
"touch helps us get to the dream world inside." Yes, yes, fingertips, a conduit to the soul of imagination.
Thank you for inviting touch into the experience. Your touch on these quilts is evidence of the vast sky within.
Your work is beautiful Judy. Leaves me moved and speechless. Thank you for the pictures, since I won't be able to go to the gallery.
Your work is absolutely breathtaking! I wish that I could see this show in person - it is so intriguing on so many levels. Thank you for this beautiful presentation. many OXOX's
to finally arrive at simplicity is my favorite part.
(((Judy))) thank you for this virtual view of your show, are visitors allowed to reach out and touch the cloth in real life?
The little blue cloth in the basket is for visitors to touch. To hold up, to fold, to stroke. The other ones - sorry - this is a commercial art gallery and all pieces are white and are for sale - so in order to touch them, they need to first be purchased.
We need to just touch them with our eyes and imagination. xoxo
so generous of you to provide a touch cloth. and, oh, my!
Your work is amazing and I wish I could come to see your pieces in Canada.Any chance to exhibit in the UK? You would be so welcome
Brilliant idea....the touching cloth.
As Velma says...oh, my!
Thank you so much for sharing these images from your beautiful exhibition, glorious!
The touch cloth is such a wonderful idea. The first thing I would want to do is feel the texture of your beautiful quilts. They are stunning!
And. Wow. The tactile quality of these works is such a siren song for touch, but the lyrical swoops and open spaces make a similar call to the mind and the eye. Really beautiful Judy.
such amazing work! would love to meet you in person, too bad I live so far
This body of work is powerful. I wish I could see it up close! thank you for sharing it for those of us far away.
