Silk and cotton quilt
2 panels ea. 12" x 36" x 3" framed
“Crystal Skull (1 and 2)” is a diptych, two quilted panels hung side by side. This piece is inspired by a trip to Chicago, where I spent six years of my life. My artwork at this point was becoming more influenced by geometry and replication; I wanted to challenge myself to create geometric forms from soft fabric, and to try to replicate the design exactly in reverse. Additionally, I wanted to re-sample my own samples to see if I could create new work from older work. I am pleased with the hypnotic effect the reversed images create when placed side by side, but I also wanted each piece to work on its own.
