We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Ildiko's No. 2 piece

This quilt was inspired a piece of fabric in the top left quadrant. Some friends and I experimented with gelatine printing some time ago. I did not at all like the outcome until after a few hours the "plate" broke into pieces and already several layers of paint were stuck. I added I think some metallic brown on top, and had this fabric coming out. Looks like quartz to me!
In the bottom right quadrant I tried to produce a kind of inverse of this fabric: heavily stiching the gaps between the stones with variegrated thread.

  1. That fabric resembles a rocky, stony surface exactly. It is amazing what one can get with printing like that, I use my Gelli Plate. The quilting adds a lot to this piece.
