Dwellings #2: Urban/Suburban2015
Fabric, batting, thread. Machine pieced and quilted.
“Dwellings #2: Urban/Suburban” was inspired by a historic neighborhood in Cincinnati named Over-the-Rhine. Urban decay meets hipster in this rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of 150 year-old brick buildings. This piece took an unexpected turn when I introduced green, commenting on the dense walkable urban neighborhood verses the sprawl and green of the suburbs.
