Quartet of mixed media art quilts
Alchemists and philosophers determined that the world was created of four basic elements and that for each, there existed a creature made of, and attuned to, that element.
Elemental brings together the four alchemical elements – earth, air, fire and water – with their associated cardinal points, astrological signs, colours and seasons. These four small mixed-media art quilts were created from a single piece of hand-dyed fabric. They also incorporate hand-painted and stencilled fabrics, metallic foils, machine stitch, and embellishment.
