La Veta, CO USA
Width: 15" Length: 15"
Materials/Techniques: Hand-dyed cotton fabrics, made by machine.
Artist Statement: I veered from my typical bright colors and used these paler hues as a symbolic reference to how a once-vibrant person afflicted with Alzheimer's fades to become a shadow, a veiled and foggy representation as it were, of their former self. The flower is dropping petals as each memory fails. Only a hint of what was once thriving, strong, beautiful, and vibrant remains. The spirits of others who have shared the same fate stand on either side, patiently waiting - understanding.
Dedication: Dedicated to my dad, Richard Tims.
This quilt has a Split Sleeve.
