Fade to Red

This improvisational photoquilt combines a few pieces and parts that I’ve used before: the metallic red rectangles from Red Turn and the thin, mostly white strips that are leftover after photos are printed.  I previously used these strips in Persistence of Winter.

My focus with this photoquilt was balancing the red and the white.  The result is a bit like a photo that’s been zoomed in a thousand times so that each pixel, which had formed a perfect curve, begins to break down and dissolve.  The shapes have some order without seeming patterned, almost like residential plots in a sprawling suburban neighborhood.
