Well, I’ve somehow managed to escape the doom and gloom that is typically Seattle in February and am down in L.A. for a few more days visiting and helping my friend Luke Haynes with a project (see my previous post about our recent collaboration on this project here). Luke is a fine art quilt-maker based here in L.A. He’s recently created 50 quilts based on a pattern known as the log cabin. This particular collection of quilts was inspired by the works of minimalist sculpture artist Donald Judd. The design and display of this body of works is intended to evoke a sense of sculpture from the quilts, something traditionally regarded more simply as a craft object.
With a desire to continue our collaboration on this project here in sunny Los Angeles, Luke and I enlisted the help of models as a way to provide context and show interaction with the quilts as sculptural objects. Check out a preview of our work so far:
