I created my talisman series to provide the viewer with a sense of ancient rocks and our shared history. Talisman I speaks to both the history of mankind and the marks each of us makes on ourselves and others. Life may be seen by some to be black and white. We must be aware that what we etch in our hearts and mind will be reflected in our actions and words.
I work to have a sense of drama in my art. To add depth and enhance the feeling, I use a painterly technique on non primed canvas, and adding textures and fibers. I want the viewer to pause, ponder and desire to step in my work for a time of reflection.
This quilt features painted canvas, batiks, commercial fabrics, beads, and yarn. Machine quilted.
