Caving Away Beneath Us. Again.

Textile Collage with Acrylic on Fabric

44” x 45″


A sinkhole: a visual metaphor for the feeling that the very earth is caving away beneath you. In this quilt story, the earth caves away beneath home. with other homes already down in the hole. Others have experienced this too. Or this family has lost everything more than once.
I began by writing memories. I filled the muslin behind the sky, as well as the pieces that formed the girl. The story unfolds on top of the words.
