The Straight and Narrow
This quilt series continues an exploration of linear themes. Lines, stripes, direction and space converge and coalesce to create a meditative study in simplicity.
Utilizing vintage and new striped linens and cottons on austere neutral grounds, the (mis)alignment of horizontal and vertical compositions unexpectedly directs the eye and mind. Fragments of memories – a glimpse inside a suitcase, a cottage bedroom at season’s end – are evoked by these deceptively simple quilts. The quilts are machine-quilted in my signature figure-eight pattern.
The quilts shown were created for a 2012 exhibition at the design gallery Ralph Pucci International in NYC.
