More comments about the Sanford Biggers show. Not everything in the show featured messy paint applications. One of the quilts, stretched on a wood armature, had dramatic holes, bordered with black organza to give a striking shadow illusion.
Two of the quilts, both Tumbling Blocks, were overlaid with sequins and lame, glittering under the gallery lights. No paint drips on these, just fabric collage.
Sanford Biggers, Ooo Oui
Several pieces were made by stretching quilt sections into wood-framed constructions. The first one we saw as we came through the exhibit was intriguing, made in part from American flag-motif quilts.
