Daphne Taylor’s Quilt Drawing series honors her love of drawing and painting. Lines reminiscent of landscape and figure are embroidered, pieced and composed within frameworks ranging from wide open spaces to complex colored fields. The rich visual language of these lines and markings is influenced and restrained by the power of simplicity. Hand quilting is of great importance in her work because it is the equivalent to the act of drawing. While the placements of fabric are composed geometrically, the quilting on top is a loose, spontaneous act. Her hand responds to the shapes in the cloth, creating a loose rhythm of shadow line that is simple, clear and meditative .
