Today I continue my search for textile artists that inspire. Today's artist comes from Canada, Elaine Quehl. She makes dramatic and colourful nature-themed art quilts featuring luscious foliage (particularly hosta leaves), flowers and trees. She dyes her own fabric, the result is vibrant quilts that transport you into a Garden of Eden. Check out her website to be inspired.
There are so many amazing textile artists to be found on the web. You can spend hours looking at their inspirational work, their taking on the world around us. I have been looking at Annette Morgan- England and Liz Kuny - USA work and starting thinking about doing a bit of a around the world re textile artist. Today I found Pat Archibald from Scotland. She has taken the around the world a step further making art piece influenced by Scotland, Africa, India, Hong Kong, Japan and Barbados. Check out her website www.patarchibald.com
Yesterday I went to the Triple Stitch exhibition at Bolin Bolin Gallery at Bulleen Art & Garden, 6 Manningham Rd Bulleen to check out my friend Jacie Malseed's latest work. Jacie's focus is textiles and colour, I really like the direction she is taking her work, she is one talented lady. The exhibition is a collaboration of three friends, each working in their own style and technique so there is plenty of diversity to keep your interest as you view this exhibition in this light filled gallery. www.gallery.baag.com.au
