HUNDERTWASSER-HAUS




   Better late than never. I found this a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I thought I liked Hundertwasser's paintings until this challenge: I discovered that I only had an impression of them and I'd never really had a good look at them. I like his use of colour, but I dislike the way in which he used so many closely placed lines. However I really like his architectural designs and so I chose to interprete the Hundertwasser-haus in Vienna.

  1. I too found this artist difficult to interpret, so you are not alone. Great idea to use his architecture and I like the fact that you have kept it simple, clean and really appealing.

  2. Nice, clean and crisp - so true Colleen. Very neat and lovely colours! I would have liked some more background (brickwork) quilting, but I'm happy you're back in the saddle Jinnie!

  3. I agree with both Mai-Britt and Colleen. Love the colours of the houses, but more quilting may have flattened it a bit more. Good use of lines and proportions.

  4. I was in two minds about quilting the background as there is no visible brickwork or lines in the walls of the Hundertwasser-haus and I finally decided to keep it as simple as possible, as I found using the machine to be more difficult than I thought. I will have to wait a bit longer before I can use it for any length of time, so the Janvier quilt is definitely going to be sewn by hand!

  5. What a clever re-creation of his stacked houses! Your piece really conveys the uniqueness of these wonky houses in true architectural style.

  6. Loved your comment about only having had an impression of his work as I felt much the same. That's the beauty of this challenge in that it does make you look, and look again.
