Form, Not Function 2 -- the big prizes
The two big prizes in FNF, right after best in show, went to two of the biggest quilts in the room.
The artist statement explains: "Made to look like shattered glass, the work is crafted from traditional mattress ticking fabric to convey the intimacy that once was, the fragility of human connections, and the emotional impact of ending a relationship.... every time the quilts are installed, the layout and scale change. This speaks to the varying ways in which individuals enter and leave our lives."
Two big quilts, each with big impact and presence!
