Ann Turley – Artist style #3

Inspired by “Senecio”

Paul Klee had quite a sense of humor and in this piece, was influenced by African culture. My quilt closely, though not exactly, imitates the original. Klee made good use of geometric shapes and simple colors. His painting demonstrates his own principles of art with graphic lines, space and color. I took his concept and adjusted the colors and shapes to suit my personal style. Here, it is plain to see that he “took a line for a walk.” I used all commercial cottons in the construction of my quilt.
