Dominant Curve in Space
46 x 32
Inspired by Wassily Kandinsky’s, Dominant Curve. 1936
Made for the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild Kandinsky Challenge.
In doing research on Kandinsky, I read that he was fascinated with microorganisms and often incorporated them in his work. In reflecting on the inspiration piece and my own fascination with space and the universe, I took the “curve” to space. Kandinsky also believed in "intentional disjunction" - allowing the viewer to participate in the creation of the work. (For example, the staircase that doesn't go anywhere.) In Dominant Curve in Space it is up to the viewer to decide what the balls represent and if they are being drawn in or spewed out.
