Eke Krug – Music

Symphony of colors

Thinking about music, I wonder how to catch it. Music is everywhere, you can hear music in the rain and wind, sounds of birds and animals, the sound a crowd of people makes, traffic and trains, and so on. And then there is the instrumental music, classic, rock, folk or blues, each with its own sound.

Form me music is also energy and color. Every sound is connected to a color and bringing these together gives a symphony of sounds and colors… that is what made me make this art-quilt. Starting with some small sounds on the background, giving birth to the base tones coming out of the dark in the bottom of the piece. Changing colors and mixing them and ending with the whole mix of colors and glitter, leaving the piece and flow into the air, a symphony of colors is born.


snow dyed/shibori cotton for the background, pieces of silk, wool cotton, linen, all hand dyed, bits of synthetic tulle with glitter and synthetic organza, metallic foil, many different sewing threads, 80/20 batting, cotton for the back of the piece

Techniques: Raw applique, machine stitching
