I am excited to be showing a few large pieces from my recent series Paper Quilts at Darwin's Cafe on Mt. Auburn St. in Cambridge. Darwin's is an award-winning cafe and corner store that has been a neighborhood favorite since 1993.
Paper Quilts is a recent series of work inspired by color theory, mosaics, textile design and improvisational quilting techniques. Referencing traditional patterns, I cut and arrange various types of paper (including discarded magazines, paint chips, postcards, letters, clothing catalogues and paper wrappers and packaging) into colorful geometric designs. The process of carefully arranging each piece of paper becomes a meditative experience. While working, time slows down and tiny, individual pieces coalesce into a single image.
Join me at the cafe for wine tastings the third Thursday of each month!
