Description

The "Americana'' series began during the Black Live Matter protests while the CoronaVirus pandemic spread in 2020. “Americana” is based on the research of white American women in relation to Civil Rights, Anti-Slavery, and Sufferage movements. Women used quilts to further their cause as a means of fundraising and support, as well as for banners during the protest. The “Americana'' series is inspired by traditional geometric repeat patterns from historic quilts of these time periods. The majority of the colors of the “Americana” series represent varied flesh tones of the American population, including over 45 colors, and consist of a combination of second-hand and new fabrics. The calming repeat patterns and organic uneven shaping contradicts the manic repetitive overlapping dark red machine embroidery. Most of the pieces in “Americana” are stretched on rigid supports and are presented as paintings to hang on the wall, blurring the lines between Craft and Fine Art.
