Taiwan International Quilt Exhibition - one week to go!

Detail of my entry to the Taiwan International Quilt Exhibition as part of the Broadstrokes group of artists. It has been a privilege to be part of this talented group, many of whom are en route to Tainen, Taiwan for the exhibition opening next week. This year's theme required artists to consider loss of species (represented by the log cabin blocks of varying sizes) shot (quite literally) by my neighbour and butcher Kane. You can see the peppering as well as the rather large hole after being blasted by a 12 gauge.  I felt it more than demonstrated the point that the fastest loss of species from the planet is related to the activity of humans. The restorative element of the brief was achieved by suturing the wounds - a healing and hopeful aspect.

Definitely a powerful image, Ali! Hope you (or your colleagues) share photos of the entire exhibit. Our 15 x 15 Group will be there...with a rather tame showing in comparison, I fear... ;-)
