I wrote earlier today about the latest critique group challenge, the monthly exercise in using an existing piece of art as the inspiration piece for a quilt. We've created pieces using paintings, sculptures and architectural forms as our starting point. This month we were presented with the painting "Cliche" by Stuart Davis, painted in 1955. You might want to click on the link above to see the actual painting. I spent the afternoon in the studio, and this is my take:
|The Root of the Problem, unquilted, approximately 16" x 25"|
What do you think? Did I get far enough from the painting?
