Quilt Paintings Art Exhibition, (SCENE) Metrospace, Department of Art, Art History, and Design
(Exhibits (Museum, Gardens, ...))
Quilt Paintings is a solo exhibition featuring the artwork of Anna Buckner. I piece the fabric scraps together forming a quilt top that is then stretched on a support. The design of the piecework is appropriated from traditional quilt patterns, but the initial symmetry of the piecework is compromised through stretching, causing the material to warp. Therefore, the support of the painting is a tool for transformation, revealing the potential of these materials, and pushing them into a role for which they are not traditionally used.
