Three Seraphim

Machine pieced & hand quilted t-shirt remnants, old quilt remnants, assorted yarns

On view at the 107th Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Annual Exhibition; Westmoreland Museum of American Art; November 9, 1919-January 26th, 2020.

I use ordinary textile remnants to create art quilts. This work is one in a series of mantles representing spiritual entities. The mantle, like a quilt, serves the practical function of keeping one warm while protecting from the elements. These mantles serve as symbolic divine representation multiplied by the power of three.  The purple stars of Sariel evoke inner wisdom. The eyes of Chamuel, surrounded in green, channel strength and courage. The yellow and orange wheels of Uriel bring knowledge and insights.

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.
