Nancy Crow Drawings: Monoprints and Riffs


DRAWINGS: MONOPRINTS and RIFFS showcases two types of contemporary quiltmaking created by artist Nancy Crow in the period of 2011-2020. During this time, Crow focused on monoprints and machine-pieced quilts. All are explorations of color and balance, form and texture, visual tension and meaning. Crow considers these works to be quilted drawings.

The drawing inherent in Crow’s machine-pieced quilts is a process of strength and freedom, as she uses the natural swing of her arm and hand to manipulate a rotary cutter to create long, fluid lines. The sometimes graceful and sometimes quirky lines are transformed on her design wall, without a preconceived plan, into powerful sequenced images with a vibrating tension. Crow deliberately challenges herself to create large pieces that grab the viewer’s attention.
