Today’s ‘member spotlight’ is shining on the “ceramic quilts” of Tennessee based Andrea Larsen. She’s a Mexican American ceramic artist who uses abstract design and quilt patterns as her visual language: In her work, Andrea strives to make connections between things that struggle to connect
Wow that video on her website is soo good, what an inspiration!
Danielle, I love your critiques. They give me a whole new perspective of what is being created in the art world. As a teen, I learned how to quilt and created 3 beautiful quilts. When I went to college and started painting, it gave me all the knowledge to create the paintings that I created from that time on. Shapes, textures, lines, patterns all become a part of my painting language to this day. I want to commend you on demonstrating how the way that women created years ago in fabric is being used to extend their creations in other media today. The ceramic quilts are so clever and stunning. Once I started painting, I stopped quilting but it became a part of my journey as a visual artist as well as other female artists. Thank you for bringing this history forward in your posts.
Thank you so much Danielle! 🥰
