Hi n Lo

  • 2011

Hi n Lo addresses a question that struck me after a trip to New York City’s Museum of Modern Art and, subsequently, the American Folk Art Museum: “Why is an Op Art piece valued as ‘high’ art and an intricate quilt considered ‘low’?” The theme centers around this idea of blending the two worlds. What if Joseph Albers was a quilter or Gee’s Bend quilts turned into paintings? Comprised of works that explore the significant commonalities between Contemporary Art, American quilters and Folk artists, the works of Hi n Lo revel in the uses of pattern.
