Crossroads: Constructions, Markings, and Structures
A collection of 25 improvisational quilts, this compilation from one of the premier colorists in contemporary American art represents work from three distinct series of quilts, all of which are photographed in sensational colors and with extensive detail. The quilts in the first series, Constructions, are large complex pieces created from hundreds of strips of fabrics. The next, Markings, is a series of nine quilts in which the artist explores calligraphy. In the final series, Structures, the artist repeatedly places silk-screened images directly onto cloth, creating blocks of color. Featuring the works-in-progress alongside the finished artwork, this showcase provides fascinating insight into the artistic process.
