New Piece Added to Collection: Abandoned Water Structure (2015)

Tierney Davis Hogan and Betty Anne Guadalupe have added a new piece to The Wardrobe Meets the Wall Collection: Abandoned Water Structure.

Tierney Davis Hogan discussed the background and inspiration on this piece in her tierneycreates blog in the post What’s on the Design Wall: Working Through a New Art Quilt Piece.

Below are the details which have been added to The Collection page:

ABANDONED WATER STRUCTURE (2015) – 40″ L x 18″ W, recycled silk garment scraps, specially dyed cotton fabric

Designed and pieced by Tierney Davis Hogan; Quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

Artist Statement:

An abandoned power plant along a river in Oregon and the austere decay of the weather worn structure inspired this collaborative piece. The structure inspired my piecing of recycled silk garment sample scraps into a gray tonal variegated cotton background; and inspired the quilting by Betty Anne Guadalupe, intuitively based on the actual photograph of the decaying structure and the water flowing around it. As technological progress is made and people migrate to urban areas, there is beauty to be found in the historical weather worn abandoned structures left behind.
