Mama Mia! The MoMA is the best. Sometimes I feel like the world is standing still and I am in heaven. Today was one of those times. The MoMA has just opened a Matisse exhibition of his paper cuts. Well, if ever there was an art exhibition that "speaks" to a modern quilter, then this is it.
Whether you are a modern quilter , or a lover of appliqué , there was inspiration everywhere.
I was struck by his clear use of colour, positive/ negative space ,and shape composition.
Of course , there was also the regular pieces on display- Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh.
Mondrian is just asking for modern quilt interpretation
I found a few textile pieces too. This piece by Al Loving reminded me of a few stray batik strips in my stash.
This piece named "Bed" by Robert Rauschenberg incorporates an old quilt in its composition. He tries to act in the gap between art and life. I think about quilts that way too, and I am sure I am not alone.
That was my day , and I am content.
Happy sewing, Miriam x
Yeah, just the 'regular' stuff ... 'Of course , there was also the regular pieces on display- Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh' ! JillReplyDelete
