They watch him, 2013

Artist dye-painted cotton whole cloth, photo printed on habotai silk, machine quilt drawing.
I love this photo of my father’s cousin, Sammy Lester from around 1924. I use the image often in different ways. You can see it in another piece here. The original photo with his sister, Gwen is here.
I used to use the whole photo and frame it with the art quilt. That worked for a while. I like taking the person out of the background and placing them in a landscape of my imagination.
