Life and Death 2010

"Life and Death" is a mixed media quilt designed for the Stretching Art and Tradition 12: Famous Pairs challenge. 

Civilizations are born, rise, and eventually fall, leaving behind remains of varying degrees of permanence and mystery. Nature eventually reclaims all such spaces, with new growth covering old stones and creatures of all sizes finding shelter in and amongst the remains of those long gone. Someday, a new civilization may return and uncover a mystery. “Life and Death” is constructed from hand-dyed and commercial cottons, wool felt and roving, silk, paper, paint and beads

This quilt was exhibited as part of the last 2009 Stretching Art and Tradition challenge displayed in Lancaster, PA at the Quilter's Heritage Celebration.

Held in the artist's private collection
