Quilt Art

I love the methodical process of choosing and cutting the printed images (I copy everything on an ink-jet printer). I then sort them into various piles, and divide those again between light and dark values. Eventually I began to cut the squares into two triangles and construct subtle diagonal patterns. In some cases I cut triangles out of rice paper and glued those over the first layer to make diagonals.

I find the combination of order and chaos in these paintings gives them a timeless quality. They will always surprise you with something you feel you’ve never seen before.

All these paintings have a final layer of beeswax combined with damar resin, typical of all my work. This gives them a subtle softness that tends to unify the chaos.
