Tolerance

Lou Wolf Vallance's avatar Lou Wolf Vallance

I am a mixed media artist presently using fiber with a "mandala" theme to express my insights and commentary on social issues. My proposal is to create a mandala art quilt which will portray a positive message of the "common thread" between all people, all races, socioeconomic status, gender, religion and cultures. My work in particular will center on the issue of tolerance which for me is the significant goal of social change, the awareness that we are all human, cut from the same "cloth", living on this tiny planet together as a family. Using the form of the mandala as a focusing tool for personal contemplation and reflection, I intend to create this fiber work, approximately 45" in diameter, of hand quilted and pieced cloth, embellished with mixed media elements. This work is still in progress.........
