2012 Cushion Challenge inspired by chosen artist
Members were challenged to create a cushion inspired by an artist of choice. It was suggested that this come become a collection for entry into The Great Northern Quilt Show at Harrogate SHow Ground in September. These are the 7 entries: individual images and details are shown below
Su Sisung - Wave
"This challenge was set to produce a cushion inspired by an artist or a work of art. As I love blue and the sea, I chose a woodcut by the Japanese artist Hokusai (published between 1829-32)". This won 2nd prize.
Michele Boyd - Small Boats of Regatta
"As I sail a lot in the Lake District and I love colopur, I used Paul Klee'spainted scenes of boats in a regatta as my inspiration. 3rd prize winner
Jacky Hooton - Tree and Landscape
Inspiration came from the waterclour landscapes of Yorkshire by David Hockney. My interpretation is bsed on photographs of Cheshire where I live showing a sandstone cottage and the black and white railings in our rural landscape. Awarded Judges Merit
"This cushion was based on the work of Piet Mondrian and 'Brooklyn Boogie Woogie' was the inspiration."
"I chose Charles Rennie Mackintosh for my cushion and the bias binding is vintage!"
"I love the work of Bridget Riley so here is my interpretation of one of her works"
