IKE Installation

I finally was able to hang art installation work at the kid's house next door (Fig. 1-2) as their bathroom remodel is in the end stages.  One long wall worked very nicely.  8" squares were mounted on 8" canvasses set on a 12" grid.  Close up (Fig. 3).  The work tells the story of their pre-hurricane cabin, Time Bandit, which was demolished during Hurricane Ike in 2009.  Time Bandit was reborn as Top Shelf in 2011.  IKE began as a quilt top and morphed with lots of texture (thread trash), tulle, puff paint,gesso (white, black and clear) and quilting into the installation work shown below.
