Wild Flowers & Pollination
Chris Wolf Edmonds, one of the founders of the KVQG,
has a show opening next week in Kansas City.
Opening reception: Thursday, May 26, 2011 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
An exhibition by Chris Wolf Edmonds titled “Studio Quilts drawn from Nature” will be on display at the Corridor Art Space (located within the Westport office of Gould Evans) beginning Thursday, May 26 and closing Tuesday, July 19, 2011.
The works in this show were constructed with hand painted and printed cotton fabric. Photo images by the artist were collected with a digital camera and downloaded to a computer where size, color and form were manipulated and then reproduced on cotton fabric and photo paper using a pigment based ink jet printer. The surfaces were pieced, layered with batting and backing fabric, machine quilted, mounted on hand painted boards and fronted with plexiglas.
Artist Statement: Kansas is a land bounded by horizons. The sweep of its terrain provides a stage for the spectacle of earth and sky, for the pageant of seasonal color shifts, for the parade of creatures across grasslands, water and flyways, for the grandeur of towering thunderheads and the grace of billowing grasses, for the rosy luster of dawn and the glow of sundown suffusing the air. All are part of a kaleidoscopic palette that makes my heart sing and provides a stimulus for my art.… for it is the nature of artists to manipulate the art of nature.See Chris's beautiful website by clicking here:
