My decision to use discarded quilts, a craft medium most commonly associated with women’s domestic work, recognizes that these artifacts have value as material repositories/artifacts embedded with the decisions of their makers–aesthetic, utilitarian, and creative. As a painter, I appropriate the remains of quilts and paint on them, interacting with their concept, form, pattern, and surface.
