I've been trying to come up with a piece to make for a SAQA exhibit at the Indianpolis Museum of Art next year. The theme is a contemporary take on Marie Webster's quilts. Thre really isn't much about Marie Webster's quilts that inspires my current artistic path. However, I decided I would look at elements in her work that I might be able to use. I found a quilt of hers with a border I like--just the border.
This week's pattern was inspired by that border and a piece of art I saw in a museum. Sadly, I'm not sure what museum it was, and I'm not sure of the artist either. I want to say the artist is Ai Wei Wei, because I think I remember commenting that it didn't look like his other work. Maybe I'm wrong. (If you know the artist, please let me know.) Here is my photo of the piece in the museum.
