GET OFF THE ACID - ON HOLD (IN SHOW)
Silk and cotton quilt
16" X 16" unframed
“Get Off The Acid” is a quilt inspired by my collaboration with artist Margaret Timbrell. We both noticed that we had collected comments about our art, so we decided to make art from the comments. If the comment was Margaret’s, I put her image in the quilt; if it was my comment, I created a self-portrait. I used a floral background because she often uses floral imagery in her work. In this quilt, I look skeptical when confronted by a comment. My early work often inspired such comments because viewers saw it as weird or odd, thus, they felt the need to express this to me (anonymously, of course, by writing in my comment book). I find it funny and empowering to reclaim their words and turn them into more art, from my own point of view.
