Breaking OutThe bright primary colors of the thread dance freely across the closed rectangles of the fabric to represent the way in which creating art releases us from the regular patterns of our everyday lives. The colorful wire originating from the center of the thread-painted burst is an extension of the stitching, breaking the piece into the third dimension and away from stereotypes of what a quilt “should” be. The wire encounters resistance when it meets the poultry fencing that covers the piece, but just as creativity cannot be contained by the monotony of everyday life, they find a way to break through to freedom.
