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.

Fern by Ildiko

It may be surprising that this piece was originally designed to be another stone-rock-cliff piece for 2015. My original inspiration was a marbled stone, which I wanted to make in a green-blue palette, with a touch of yellow and purple.
I had dyed two largish pieces of fabric but neither was really close to my vision but one piece came out nicely: one end being blue, and the other green. Really fern green to me. I ironed fusible webbing to the green piece and, after drawing a few guiding lines,  I started to cut it freehand. After ironing it on the blue end of the fabric, I quilted it in place, and then added more quilting in contrasting colours in between the strips. Finally, I used a bit of yellow shiva to highlight a few areas.

  1. I like this one a lot. Great color combination and the piece really has fluidity.
