Genevieve Guadalupe – Artist style #4

In the style of Hilma af Klint.

The Flower shape. The flower shape is very present in af Klint’s work, as she drew her inspiration from nature. In this quilt I chose to display the flower as a single and unique form. The sun (masculine) and the moon (feminine) are linked to the flower, showing the importance of polarity in all living things.

Materials and technique: cotton fabric, poly thread, cotton batting, oil base inks, embroidery floss. Monoprint printed on fabric, machine quilted, hand embroidered.


  1. Very effective use of mono-printing, I love the simplicity and gentle colours; great stitching as well. Lovely piece of work.

  2. Stunning, of course I admired hand quilting. Great interpretation, I think with our artist quilts it is important to know how the artist approached their work, so thank you for the explanation of her work.
