The sea has many colors


I had the pleasure to be interviewed by Diane Howell, editor of the SAQA Journal, who featured my quilt, Night Lights, in the Inspired column in the latest issue of the SAQA Journal magazine. Her questions were an occasion, for me, to think of the variety I can find at the seaside. Indeed, she asked about both my works Sealights and Night Lights, inspired by the reflection of the light on the surface of the sea, respectively in a Summer day and in the Winter evening.

I am aware that the colors of the sea can be many more than those. I daily choose sunset time, or sunrise time, or a cloudy moment, or an almost rainy hour, and all the possible weather types, as a good reason to visit the seaside space in my town. I check the clarity of the horizon line, the size of the waves, the reflection games.

If you are a SAQA member, you can find the full article in SAQA Journal, Volume 34, Issue 2, page 39. Here below, an excerpt of the article page.

SAQA is a very lively community: if you’re not familiar with them, you may be surprised by how many initiatives are hosted by SAQA. In the meanwhile I was preparing this post, I also had another beautiful piece of news. I’m honored to have been informed that my work “River Gone Green” was selected by jurors Ildiko Polyak, Maya Chaimovich and Susan Vogel for the @saqaart Europe and Middle East juried exhibition “WIDE HORIZONS IX”.
In the picture below, a moment when “River Gone Green” was in the starting phase, on the design wall. If you wish to see it, Wide Horizons IX will debut at European Patchwork Meeting (EPM) in Sainte Marie-aux-Mines, France, from 12th to 15th of September 2024.
