The quilt exhibit is based on our interpretation of any or all of the master artists. For this past exhibit we had: Hokusai, Hunderwasser, Mucha, Frankenthaler, Klimt, Beadersley and VanGogh).
Here are 3 of my pieces based on two of the artists. Next week I'll show some more! Good to document your art work (yes, I forgot what I had done!).
For all of these pieces I painted Tyvek Fabric that was quilted onto a 'quilted' background, then I burnt the edges or entire piece with a regular iron or a soldering iron.
My Interpretation of Hokusai (based on his 'Wave")
My Interpretation of Alphonse Mucha
I love the Art Nouveau era so I ended up making two quilts for this artist!
For this piece I used a soldering iron to burn around the painted Tyvek image.
For this piece and the "wave" I just used an iron and pressed up and down on the Tyvek to burn away sections. Scary but fun to do!
If you haven't played with Tyvek yet, you really need to try it! When you receive mail that is in the white Post Office envelope(s), save them! You can cut them open and paint over the letters on the front or paint on the back of the envelope. You can also purchase Tyvek fabric (last I bought some was from Joggles).
