Silk and cotton quilt
2 panels ea. 36" x 36" x 3" framed
“Double Diamond” (L and R) is a diptych of two quilted panels hung together. In 2016 I became obsessed with diamonds and gems as seen in clip art reproductions. I started to notice that although many jewelry and pawn shops use clip art images of diamonds in their storefronts, the images are all quite different (much like diamonds themselves). I began to collect these images, and to fill the facets with colors not seen in nature. Additionally, I was experimenting with trying to duplicate a handmade quilt exactly, but in reverse. I like the effect; the images are very close, but not perfect, which reminds the viewer that they are viewing a hand-made object, not one that is mass-manufactured.
