Losing the Compass | Quilts at White Cube, London

I am pleased to share that two of my quilts are part of the exhibition, Losing the Compass, at White Cube's Mason's Yard space. The exhibition was curated by Cameron Weaver and Mathieu Paris, and includes an exceptional group of work.

Unconventional & Unexpected comes to a close.

I have been unpacking the quilts from my exhibition that closed on May 17 after it opened on February 14 of this year. The quilts from my recent book, Unconventional & Unexpected, generated so many ideas and excitement that flowed into this exhibition of the same name at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art. It was thrilling to see the quilts as I imagine them: freely flying, invitingly draped over a pedestal, or with its back shown instead.


Toward the end of the exhibition as part of the A.R.T.S. Student Exhibition, 4th and 5th graders from Sonoma came to visit the exhibition. After seeing the quilts, they responded in kind with their own quilted creations. They installed their pieces amongst Unconventional & Unexpected, titling their show Piecing It Together. The concurrent exhibitions paired so very beautifully. I am in love with their masterpieces!

The exhibition, Unconventional & Unexpected, was featured in Petauma360 on May 10, just before the exhibition closed. I had a great conversation with them about my background with quilts and my adventure in discovering their beauty.
