Artist Information for Charlotte Ziebarth

My work is a hybrid of photography, digital art, and quilt art.

The inspiration for most of my work comes from the forms, colors, and patterns of the natural environment and  their interaction with manmade structures.  Exploring the nuances, the intricate patterns, the enigmatic qualities found even in everyday environments remains my focus.  I am constantly seeking the evocative photographs which I can work on in the digital studio to use in my quilts. Whether designing at my computer, or observing and photographing while hiking and traveling, I am looking for strong images that I can incorporate into my digital transformations.

Reverberations:  Yellowstone Waters

Reverberations: Yellowstone Waters42" h X 62" w   Photo by Ken Sanville This quilt was created from a series of photographs taken at Yellowstone’s geyser basins. The distorted reflections, ripples, patterns of light and floating elements create a mesmerizing world. The repetition of stitched lines, the patterning of grids and block arrangements, the resulting bas-relief effects of stitched, layered, quilted silk cloth allow me to tell a multi-layered story of my impressions of the experience of gazing into that world.
