Rooflines #15

Colleen Kole's avatar Colleen Kole

My composition, Rooflines #15, is a contemporary art quilt. The Rooflines series reveals my fascination with how man's architecture interacts with the natural environment whether it is a decaying barn, a precious conservatory or an urban skyscraper. How do each of these interact with sky, farm fields or mountains? I hand dye my own fabric so I have a deep rich palette to draw from. I consider my quilts a series of three marks which are uniquely mine. The first is a free hand cut to my fabrics repetitively drawing cuts into the fabrics or mark making my piece. The second mark becomes the seam lines to re-join my cut marks and the final mark is imparted to the cloth with dense free motion machine quilting . Mark making on my cloth with my hand and my stitch: Rooflines #15.
