[The-American-Context-#3]-American-Gothic

90" X 90"

2010

 

This is the 3rd piece In the American Context series where I am working with American Art icons on traditional american patchwork patterns. I have constructed the quilt base out of used and recycled clothes, linens, etc. The subjects are life size and reflect a contemporary demographic in the style of the one depicted on the original painting from which the title and pose are taken. Bringing the Grant wood piece to mind brings up questions about the crossover of craft and art, utility and aesthetic as well as the subtext in a quilt object.
