Quilt Evolution

    These paintings have their starting point in a large framed silk quilt top which I have had for 35 years. It is made up of tiny triangles which form and re-form into hexagons and larger triangles depending on the way it is observed.
                                              Antique quilt

 I have taken the basic element of an iscosoles triangle and changed its scale and color to create new images. The triangles eventually "escape" from their rigid geometric patterns thus enabling me to follow them into new design territory. Eventually I plan to take the triangle shape and use it in other materials like wood and acrylic to make 3 dimensional puzzle paintings. Perhaps we will come full circle and return to making art using these shapes in textiles again.  Here are some of the first set of works inspired by the antique quilt whose graphic qualities have amazed me for more than 3 decades.
