Shin Gyo So is an expression from Japanese aesthetics related to many arts including gardening. The ancient expression refers to formal, semi-formal and informal evidence in design. In my quilt "Shin" is our shaping: the planed wood, the squared post, the angular shrine in the Japanese garden: my first panel. "So" is naturalness, original: the sand, stones and wood, nature's pieces for the garden; my third panel. "Go" is the middle: the raked sand, the mix from nature to formal garden. This original design is my first art quilt and was juried into the Husqvarna Viking Masterpiece: Art Takes Shape in 2005.International exhibit.
