JEAN LURCAT

This artist is different from the others which we have so far had, in that his body of work incorporated tapestries . I found these particularly intriguing and fascinating and couldn't decide which to do . In the end I did 2 interpretations but the first one shown will be the 'official' posting. Thanks Jinnie for selecting this artist for the series . I did enjoy looking at his art and especially enjoyed the making of my interpretations . Both included 'stand out' pieces (the flowers in the first piece and the wing feathers in the other . )This is a technique I learned years ago from Australian quilt artist ,Gloria Loughman, and I have used it in many quilts since.  Rosemary

  2. As Phil said they are both so different and both lovely. I really think your use of colour in both as well as your designs are really great and your quilting is beautiful. Two pieces you can be proud of.

  3. Wow to both, you have outdone the artist himself in my book. I took a course with Gloria years ago at FOQ, I cann't have been a good student, I can't remember what I was taught - but I do remember her wonderful quilts.

  5. These are both lovely Rosemary. I like the vibrant colours that you have used - and from looking at pictures of Lurcat's tapestries, I think that his vibrant colours as well as whimsical designs are what appeals to me. And you have captured both in both of these. Plus they are so well executed.

  6. wow! They are both great but my personal fave is the first one, I guess because I love those colours. Great inspirations from his work, with your own personal flair.

  7. I love how you have taken his motifs and used them in a way that honours traditional patchwork techniques. He would be pleased as he seems to have been quite a purist! My fav is the first one too, but thry are both fabulous.

  8. Thanks for the two stunning pieces Rosemary! They are so modern-looking and yet the colours are from Jean's work. I prefer the second one as it looks closer to the original.
