Els Mommers – Series #1 – Black and white
Artist Statement: BLACK and WHITE : lock
For my DOOR images series I have been photographing a lot of old doors and I am always especially intrigued by the peeling paint. These peeling paint structures were my quilt inspiration and I wanted to use these images for exploring textile surface design techniques. For this series, I am going to continue on this path and moreover, as a kind of continuation of the door image quilts, I now want to focus on locks, keys and keyholes. I want to show the power of these details in this black and white quilt.
Technique: stenciling on fabric, painting, raw-edge applique, free motion quilting
Material: black and white cotton fabric, Markal paintsticks, fabric paint, 80/20 batting, black cotton thread
