Stone Portraits and Sacred Stonescapes: Denise Labadie -  San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles  •   San Jose, California
June 5, 2019 - July 14, 2019

Labadie makes contemporary art quilt portraits of Celtic megalithic stones and monoliths, and more recent monastic ruins. These stonescapes – stone circles, standing stones, dolmens, burial tombs, abandoned churches, forgotten cemeteries, and lost-in-history portals and passageways – are both timeless and evoke deep remembrances of human pasts largely forgotten. Labadie's quilts are known both for their surprising emotionality, large size and, from a construction standpoint, their hand-painted fabrics, textures, color gradation, shadowing and perspective, depth of field, craftsmanship and technique precision.
