Contemporary Quilts by Brooklyn designer
Brooklyn designer S.D. Evans is amongst a slew of contemporary artists for whom quilting is the medium of choice for a body of creative work that repositions an old fashioned craft as an of-the-moment art form. Evans, who uses both hand and machine to compose her quilts, and pays as assiduous attention to the backs of her quilts as the fronts, keeps her designs supremely reductive, availing herself of basic repeat patterns—stripes, triangles, squares—and limiting her palette to a single color on white. He spare compositions manage to invoke the work of great 20th Century abstract artists like Donald Judd, Barnett Newman, and Sol LeWitt.
