Avant Jazz is a whole cloth painting on PFD fabric. I drew the design on stretched fabric and painted the shapes and completed the design with free motions quilting. Strong graphic images inspire me. This piece was created to depict the Jazz Genre- Avant Garde Jazz - it is a style of music and improvisation that combines avant-garde art music and composition with jazz. The warm and cool colors provide the movement. I chose not to quilt the circles which represents the notes being free to make improvisational music.
