A few weeks ago, I began The Post Card Projects, a return to the small works that were the first nanoscapes. They have gone in two directions: The 31 Pumpkins of October (ongoing) and The Torn Paper Projects. After the first two Torn Papers (orange at left), I took a detour with the 6" square Red Linked Blocks (right). Torn Papers play up the negative spaces filled by links in Linked Blocks, and I have returned to Torn Paper with a 12x16" new work. (below, right)
These designs had stirred a memory of Hawaiian applique quilts, and I thought that they were either the source or the inspiration. Having refreshed my memory of those exquisite works, I admit to completely mis-remembering, and must continue digging in my memory for the source of these designs.
