Genevieve Guadalupe – Artist style #2
The Spiral. In the style of Hilma af Klint.
The spiral is life energy. It appears in our DNA, hair follicle growth patterns, fingertips, cochleae inside our ears, plants like ferns, sea shells, etc… Energy moves through air and water in spirals. It is a shape of divine proportions. In this quilt I chose the spiral as my guide and try to follow the ever present duality seen in Hilma af Klint’s work. Showcasing her colours, the yellow for the sun, fire, male, energizing side of us and the blue, moon, cold, calm female side, presented in equal proportions to obtain perfect balance.
Materials and technique: cotton fabric, poly thread, cotton batting, printing inks, embroidery floss. Monoprint printed on fabric, machine quilted, hand embroidered.
