The   question   for   Maria   is   how   to   make   color   vibrate   on   the   wall.      Her   work   is   to   explore   how   color is capable of being dynamic, fickle, explosive, solemn, mysterious, and beautiful. About Maria Shell:  www.mariashell.com Her   artwork   is   grounded   in   the   craft   of   quiltmaking   which   took   many   years   to   acquire   the   skills   of cutting, piecing and quilting. She uses vintage and contemporary commercial solid and print cotton fabrics, as well as hand dyed cotton fabrics. Textiles   are   cut   primarily   without   rulers,   stitched   into   a   two   dimensional   surface   creating   a   pieced   canvas   which   she   spends   hours quilting with her longarm quilting machine. Her interest has always been in pattern and how complex pattern can also create complex figure ground composition. In   2011   she   discovered   that   if   she   limited   a   particular   pattern   (in   this   case   a   grid)   by   manipulating   the   line,   color   and   shape,   she could produce dynamic results.  This freed her to more fully explore her love of color and how to make it vibrate from the wall. Maria has been juried into many exibitions and has received many awards and grants in the US and Alaska. Maria Shell Workshops: Kitchen Sink Quilting - The ART of Making Do   (2 seats left!)
