|"Look, See" by Susan Brubaker Knapp (2014)|
Here is my piece for the exhibition: "Look, See." It is based on a closeup photo of my eye in bright sunshine, and is wholecloth painted and quilted. Quilters invited to participate in this exhibition were asked to create a 36" square quilt that looks like an app icon, representing their personal app. This piece is wholecloth painted and then quilted, and is based on a photo of my eye. I believe it is the mind, heart, and eye of the photographer, and not the camera, that makes a good shot. It is learning to see – not just look at – things.
I am excited to teach at Road To California next year, in January 2016!
