Cotton Fabric

63” x 86″


After the dark early months of the pandemic, I began working on a series of studies that renewed my creative energy, from which this quilt ultimately emerged. I was exploring creating depth from a flat surface working with shapes and bold colors floating on a dark ground. The color palette was inspired by a Basquiat painting that intrigued me with its unexpected combination of pinks and golds. This quilt is the first in a series.
