Textile Translations #280
Award: Dorothy McMurdie Founders Award
Different skills but the same spirit. How to show Candide’s Spirit. Transparency is quite a challenge in quilting and this is what I achieved using pixellism. Composition from photos taken by my husband, around 50 pixels/square inch (70,000) total, starting from white cottons and using my own colours.
Techniques and Materials
Fused appliqué; pixellism. Cotton, hand-dyed cotton, cotton batting.
Self quilted on a frameless machine.
Based on photos by Jean-Paul Chayer, the artist’s husband.
