Art Quilt Elements 2016

Curvalicious

My piece: “Curvalicious” is part of this year Art Quilt Elements 2016 show at the Wayne Art Center in Wayne, PA.  Art Quilt Elements is an international juried quilt exhibition celebrating this year its 12th anniversary.  It is on view from March 18 to April 30, 2016.  Opening reception: April 2 from 1 to 4 pm.

The piece is 32″ x 30″  and is created by monoprinting on fabric.  I use fabric paint which I brush on a Plexiglas plate and draw on the plate with a rubber tool.  Then I print directly on fabric.  For this piece I used plates of various sizes.  After cutting the fabric I assembled the elements to create this composition.  It is a departure from my Units series but it came out naturally as I am drawing more regularly.

Here is a detail of the work which shows the brush strokes, the drawing lines as well as some of the quilting lines with black thread:
