Dark Lightning Approaches
Catalog number: 2018-012
MEDIUM: Art quilt
DESCRIPTION: My work explores the relationship between line and shape. For me, this is a way of expressing the complex relationships that we all have with other people and with the political, social, and physical environment. Hue, value, saturation, proximity, size, and intersection of shapes and lines are all vehicles for expressing complex, multi-layered feelings—some of which I don’t fully understand until after a piece is finished.
“Dark Lightning Approaches” has a dystopian feel, with geometry that evokes crumbling structures or a torn street map, reflecting my anxiety about the current political climate.
