Lost In Space: Art Quilts by Bruce Seeds
October 15, 2015–January 11, 2016
Bruce Seeds is a contemporary quilt-maker. His kaleidoscopic quilts suggest nebulae and galaxies whirling out into the cosmos. Seeds begins his quilt-making process with a single printed fabric. He’s used Star Wars-themed designs and other novelty prints as the base for his artwork. The graphic fabric is then transformed into geometric tessellation akin to mosaic tile. The final quilt is not about the smaller, individual pieces but about the larger whole.
