Robin Schwalb – Life Begins at 40
Photo credit: Jean Vong
Size: 40” x 40”
Materials: Fabrics, embroidery floss
Techniques: Machine pieced and appliqued; hand quilted.
Artist Statement: Roman numerals, “greeking”—Latinate gibberish used by graphic artists to design layouts—and a detail of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes form the basis for my quilt. My professional background as a film projectionist makes me want to combine color and black and white whenever possible.
