Jenny Bowker - Cross Stitch

previous - next

This piece is my own abstraction of Burqa and Kurdish Rug. The memories are fading, the detail of the burqa is gone and the coins float in the air. The brightly coloured pattern of the rug is relegated to monotone quilting, and the cross stitch takes a larger role and is stronger.

The gold quilted panel in the upper right corner is from a pattern photographed in Iran - a more recent souvenir overlaying the older memories.
