Description

The lure of quilted fabrics, the child’s bed, and the imagery of the nursery are efficiently subverted by the graphic agenda of the artist, who introduces the imagery of violence, urban disquiet, the four-letter word and sexual dissidence with all the force of street graffiti. But the care and deliberateness of quilting, the diligent stitching, the piecing together and, above all, the time consuming aspect of this work.
