5” x 5” x 1.5”. Acrylic, textured paper, embroidery thread and fired copper on canvas.
Crazy quilting is the creation of quilts using irregularly shaped and textured fabrics together in harmonious but “crazy” or unordered patterns.
Crazy quilting was a hobby for upper-class women at one time. Eventually, however, the style fell out of fashion and was taken up by rural women who turned crazy quilting into a practical, sturdy art form.
Crazy quilting interests me especially in this form, where it could be used as a practical and beautiful way to reuse and memorialize worn-out clothes, blankets and other pieces of the past. As a multigenerational skill, crazy quilting expresses an organic, ancestral piecing-together that reinforces family bonds as well as new ideas. This piece uses paper collage and embroidery thread with fired copper to emulate in miniature some of the spirit of crazy quilts.
Artwork measuring 5" x 5" or larger is on 1.5" deep gallery-wrapped canvas. 4" x 4" artwork is on .5 deep "mini" stapleless canvas. The sides of the canvas are painted matte black (white for very light artworks). Artwork is signed and dated on the side and back.
Picture hangers, wires, etc. are not used and usually not required. The artwork can hang on one or two small picture-hanging nails. If desired, you can add picture-hanging hardware in order to hang the artwork on a picture hook.

If you choose to frame your canvas, I recommend a wooden floating frame. My canvases are gallery-wrapped (backstapled) with finished edges and are therefore also suitable for hanging without a frame.
