Hello! My name is Drew and I want to conceive and create a quilt every month for the entirety for 2012 and display them at the beginning of 2013 in a gallery show. I also want to make a series of silk screened prints based on each quilt.
With this project I want to explore the relationship between the usability and aesthetic nature of quilts. I want to create quilt patterns that are as far removed from traditonal patterns as possible while still maintaing the basic form and idea of a quilt. Each quilt will be the same size, 66" x 86", or the size of a twin bed. The silk screened prints will be done in a limited run (one for each day of the corresponding month) and will be the quilt's design translated to ink on paper.
The reason for doing this project are numerous but mainly revolve around my desire to use the medium of quilting as a means to expand my creative abilities.
Please hit me up with any questions or concerns!
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my KICKSTARTER project and if you like what i'm trying to do, please do share it with others who might feel the same way!
