t’s not easy photographing the quilts, I had limited time, and sometimes the quilts are placed on an angle so its difficult to place them square in the viewfinder. We all have to take our turn and you wait patiently for the persons in front of you to capture their images.
Then snap… so some of the images are a little crooked at times.
These are just a few of the winning quilts at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. I will add more as when I get to take the photos over the next few days.
I like to look at the quilts in detail, I study them depth, each and every one.
This is the second day of the International Quilt Festival in Houston.
My time has been limited to visit the quilts, but yesterday between appointments during my lunch time I did a quick sprint around.
This is an extremely difficult art installation to describe, so I let the images do the talking.
The QVA building in Sydney is just beautiful and I love capturing the images there. Its right opposite our hotel and we can just pop over for a coffee.
It’s so nice being home. I have another day of teaching today with a group of ladies who honour me with their presence. I’m always humbled and I still have the feeling of amazement that someone actually waits in anticipation, prepares and packs their supplies to come to one of my classes. When those ladies arrive laden with their machines and large overflowing bags of fabric, notions and the latest equipment I do a little mental dance.
Artists have challenged art by situating it in non-art contexts. Street artists do not aspire to change the definition of an artwork, but rather to question the existing environment with its own language. The motivations and objectives that drive street artists are as varied as the artists themselves.
I just walked the streets, ate good food, sat in the park and listened to world renown authors read their works. It was a magical day and I captured it forever in images.
OK, not sure how it will work out, but stay tuned to see the results.
(I’m having a day off the Bayeux today)
There’s something very basic about making a quilt.
