|From the Madrid Escher exhibition|
Thursday, 30 November 2017
I love Escher, but found this challenge totally overwhelming. Luckily I love a challenge, so thank you Venetta. There was also lots of sides to him I was totally unaware of, so researching has been most fun.
It took me a long time finding inspiration, and I would look daily at his art, being at a loss of what to do.
Then only last week I came across my source material (plenty of time then) in the form of what I think is an installation, from an Escher exhibition in Madrid. I am not sure he made it, it looks too modern, but it is clearly inspired by him. So my quilt will be inspired by, inspired by!
It was a joy to make, using the ‘flip and stitch’ method.
In my studio yesterday busy with Zoom!
Bring on the next challenge! Note to self: Do not procrastinate so much ;0)
