5167 - Triangle Memories

5167 - Triangle Memories
Geneva Foote Carroll
Lincoln, CA    USA

Width: 10.25"   Length: 8.5"

Materials/Techniques: Left over batik triangles cut from the inner part of flying geese. (Scraps!) The triangles are attached to a base of muslin, then sewn together with a backing and batting. Fun threads are added to the top.

Artist's Statement: The different random colored triangles represent memories made over a lifetime. The wispy threads at the top represent the synapses that are used to recall those memories. In AD a person loses the ability to recall the memories and those precious memories are lost forever.
Geneva Foote Carroll

Dedication: To my dad, Howard Pattison Foote, who died of AD December 20, 2000. Dad, your memories are safe with us.
