Limited Palette

Guest Curator - Shea Wilkinson

The pieces that jumped out at me were the quilts with the most limited color palettes. There is an attraction to the complexity that arises from a basis of simplicity. Each piece, with its own subtle variations in hue, draw the viewer to peer into them as if time has become suspended.

Diptych Blue Ghosts

Another in the series of Tales from a Ghost Town, this was inspired by an exhibition of work by Clifford Still, whose pieces reminded me of my wood compositions, but pushed me to expand my color range.
