This photoquilt is a further exploration of improvisational quilting.  Here, I’ve taken a series of red photographs all from the hoods, roofs, and trunks of hot rods at various car shows, and cut them into squares and rectangles and further into circles.

The metallic shine of the paint creates surprising depth and the circles seem to start to make a pattern within the squares without ever completely resolving themselves.  This represents a fairly radical departure from traditional quilt patterns, which I find to be very compelling.
