So, blues. Does anyone else notice the themes or colour schemes in the photographs they take of quilts? I have a definite leaning towards the blues so I've saved them all for this post. The first two are from the "Beneath the Southern Skies" travelling exhibition:
Kiwi's Nocturne by Monica Johnstone
and Antipodean Adventure by Debra De Lorenzo
Mood Indigo by Ruth Hainsworth
caught my eye
and the subtlety of Night and Day by Mike Wallace was worth closer inspection
Julie Mackinder's Always the Sea was a delightful piece
and Janice Gunner's arashi shibori piece, Umi spoke to me of water too
(which is clever as I later discovered "umi" is "water")
Sylvia Hammond's Blue Reflections was inspired by Japanese blue and white.
Allegro Ma Non Troppo by Mercè Gonzalez Desedamas.It must have been difficult to decide how to display it and it was certainly difficult to photograph it. Not only did people keep appearing through the sheerness of it but the lightness of the handpainted and dyed organza meant the piece keep wafting about.
Margaret Ramsay's Transported - Shinkansen
was so clever, summing up those blurred views from train windows.
