Dorota Sroka - Untitled, 2010 Paintings
Currently reading a book of antique quilt patterns & stories. The quilt on the right is from Indiana around 1850. Almost all of the quilts in this book are marked with maker as “unknown”, because, you know, the historical devaluing of women’s work/labor/art as “domestic craft”. Imagine the woman who made this quilt. What her life was like, what her heart wanted. Did she find this quilt hard to make? Where did she get the fabric? How did she arrive at her colour choices? How long did it take her to finish this piece? What would it have meant to her, to see people 150 years later, admiring her work in a fine, big, glossy book?
