Sum of the Parts
Just a piece of one of the works I have up at the Arts Center Gallery. Where the sum of the parts make the whole work. That is the fun of working in contemporary quilts. Each time you break apart the textile, you rebuild the work. It is non-linear (unlike weaving), additive and subtractive (like sculpture), and has surface design and patterning (like painting.) I can't think to work any other way.
