Seeds of Change
Catalog number: 2009-0002
DESCRIPTION: “Seeds of change” began as an unnamed yard of art cloth and grew into a meditation about “change” during the 2008 presidential election.
I layered color and different patterns until I arrived at a design problem that I felt I could not resolve without cutting up the cloth and rearranging the pieces. Further printing,
drawing, and dying on the reassembled piece brought the composition to a visual resolution. The texture layer of the quilting finished the piece.
