City Ink 2013 – Art Quilt with embedded photography

City Ink - Art Quilt 2013 by Michelle Mann - Detail

This art quilt was successfully entered into the “Tactile Architecture” section at Houston International Quilt Show 2013. Artists submit their work to Houston via photo and are only permitted to enter if selected.


Michelle’s Notes:

“The images were photos I took from South Bank in Brisbane.

I distorted the view then photo shopped the images to give an ink outline.

I had Fiona Jackson from Fiona Jackson Designs print the finished images on her amazing printer.

I wanted to keep the monochromatic style with the background so I mono-printed and stencilled the grey, black and silver paint.

I then quilted the images. The background is small squares and rectangles.

I used pink square and rectangle sequins to enhance the windows and the water in the foreground.

I love the way the mirror windows in some of the buildings on the river in Brisbane Australia reflect and I used this as my inspiration to make this quilt.”
