A facet is one flat side of something that has multiple sides. The term can be scientific, describing molecular structures and precision of gemstone-cutting, but facets can also describe the richness and mess of human life. The flat planes of facets become geometric forms when depth is added.
Quilts as two-dimensional objects are only flat in theory; in reality, they develop depth at the levels of construction and meaning. Layers of materials and seams give minute but significant dimension. Their use as functional objects also render them three-dimensional – on a bed, folded up, thrown on a couch. By wall-mounting them, they can be perceived as art objects divorced from their use and seen for their richness as connections to the past and bridges into the future. The black, white, and greyscale schemes of the work allow both the intended geometry and its altered purity in textile form.
