Quilt as Art: Wen Redmond

If you haven't viewed the Massachusetts/Rhode Island SAQA exhibit Quilt as Art: Transitions in Contemporary at the Fuller Craft Museum, there's still time. The collection is on display until January 17, 2016.

Quilt as Art gives a peek at the range of techniques, materials and artistic visions of our members while still sharing quilting roots of three textile layers stitched together.

Wen Redmond's Three Feathers Remain
is a perfect example of quilting roots branching into new forms of expression.

From the Artist Statement- One of the pleasures of composition is using a combination of the 21st tool of photography; Photoshop and mediums to create newly rendered digital fiber art. This piece was composed with a photograph of painted and cut papers digitally fused with another photograph of the edge of a glass disk. A variety of mediums, and bonded tissue paper compliment the stitching highlights of the completed work.
Techniques- A photograph was printed, quilted, and cut into segments to create an interior grid design. Each segment is sealed with paint and hand-tied together.
