Description

The Americana Quilt series began during the Black Live Matter protests while the Corona Virus pandemic spread in 2020. The series is based on research of white American women in relation to Civil Rights, Anti-Slavery, and Suffrage movements. Women used quilts to further their cause as a means of fundraising and support, as well as for banners during protest. The Americana Quilt series is inspired by traditional geometric repeat patterns from historic quilts of these time periods. Most of the colors of the Americana Quilt series represent varied flesh tones of the American population and consist of a combination of second-hand and new fabrics. The repeat patterns converse with the uneven shaping of the patchwork and the overlapping repetitive machine embroidery. The pieces in the Americana Quilt series are presented as paintings to hang on the wall, blurring the lines between Craft and Fine Art, stretched on rigid supports, or appliqued to artist linen canvas.
