Art Quilts by Linda Gass

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on November 22, 2013 in Art
  • Based in Los Altos, CA, Linda Gass is an artist and activist focused on creating awareness of the struggle over water resources in the American West. For this series of art quilts, Gass stitched together hand-painted silk crepe de chine to create colorful aerial representations of San Francisco Bay. The saturated images of salt ponds, woven on cozy quilts, use "the lure of beauty" to encourage viewers to think about environmental issues like land use and the loss of wetlands.

    "We rely on this water to live yet we have created an infrastructure that is not sustainable in the long term," she says. "My art invites the viewer to ponder these contradictions in beauty and our long term strategies for sustainable development."
