Paola Zanda – Country – Artist
Inspired by Paul Klee. 29.12.1879 – 29.06. 1940
This Artist has a special bond with me: He has lived the last months of his life in my village, and he died in the clinic, just near my home, where I was born.
He is a naturalized Swiss German. In Bern, in 2005, the Zentrum Paul Klee was opened, a museum designed by the architect Renzo Piano, which houses more than 4000 his works.
His passion for colours, abstractionism, symbolism are elements that I appreciate and use in my work.
He has had different periods in his Art. I’ve chosen to mix two of his styles for my quilt. The background is one of his typical colours palette, and for the foreground, the signs and symbols he used.
I create the background with some commercial and my hand-dyed fabrics. The symbols are appliqué. The lines designed are hand quilted and the quilting by machine.
