Freehand Patchwork by Danny Amazonas -  National Quilt Museum  •   Paducah, Kentucky
July 12, 2019 - October 15, 2019

Danny is internationally recognized for his unique artistry and amazing use of color. His eye-catching artwork incorporates thousands of pieces of fabric.

"My work eventually evolved from mosaic patterns into free-form. In 2012, using a new technique unprecedented in the field of fiber art, 'freehand patchwork' was born. Freehand patchwork is an unorthodox technique that is like painting with colorful fabric. The beauty of the original textile designs are fully expressed while freely interpreting the image of the textile art. This is something extraordinary that could not be achieved in painting. Using just a rotary cutter, overlapping layers of fused fabric and exposing the raw edges is something traditional quilters rarely do.

This exhibition of my quilts will help visitors understand how my artwork has developed through years of learning and finding new techniques. But most importantly, I think visitors want to see through my mind, by observing the artworks to make that connection."
