Genevieve Guadalupe – Horizon
Horizon Poem by Kairul Ahsan
He and she are like
The distant horizon.
It appears as though,
The stooping blue sky
Meets and embraces
The stretching blue sea.
Their colors match,
As they seem to meet silently
Like passionate lovers.
Trying to discover together,
The meaning of life.
As one goes nearer,
The sky begins to move afar!
Love is at its best, when
The beloved is seen from a distance.
Materials and technique:
Cotton fabrics,hand dyed fabrics, poly cotton threads, poly batting, india ink. Machine sewn, machine quilted, hand painted.

I can see the sea and sky meeting lovingly in the horizon with the reflection of the setting sun. Beautiful interpretation of the poem, theme and quilt design.
This piece is a very effective use of fabrics. You have created depth and movement with the different shades of blue. The inking over the fabric creates interest. The quilt mirrors the mystical nature of the poem.
Poem and quilt, matching together, like nature and lovers, the sea and the sky and the sun to complete it. I love the way you worked it out!
