I was so happy to be able to visit Colleen Heslin’s exhibit: Needles and PIns at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. The show is on until January 8, 2017 (Galleries 4-5).
I encourage you to see Heslin’s show in person. the colours, textures and size of the pieces are best viewed in person. You will be able to see the subtlety of each piece.
To see more of Colleen Heslin’s work, visit her website.
Indigo dipped cotton, linen and white pique are combined to create four individual pieces of textile art. Machine quilting adds beautiful texture.
Each textile painting is wrapped over a 6″ square gallery canvas.
These textile paintings can be displayed individually or grouped in twos or fours to create a diptych or a tetraptych.
If you are interested in having unique artwork to display in your home, contact me, I am happy to ship directly to you.
How would you choose to display these Indigo Bursts?
I was very taken by the works of Toronto artist: Sung Ja Kim Chisholm. Pages from Life’s Journey were on display at the World of Threads Exhibit.
These pieces are made with white fabric and plaster.
There is a simplicity that I find appealing.
The absence of colour makes me want to get close to examine the nuances of each piece.
There is a similarity between each one, yet each series evokes a very different feeling.
What would the pages from your life look like?
