Gregory R. Staley
Neapolitan is part of a series of improvisationally designed quilts that use solid colors to explore line and shape. The contrast between light and dark values gives an illusion of depth that changes with each viewing. Creating lines and shapes directly out of fabric is liberating, engaging me in a dialogue with my materials. The final touch is the texture created by the vertical stitching lines, pulling the composition into a cohesive whole.
Cotton fabric, batting, variegated thread.
Improvisational design, piecing.
