Utah quilt block


Title: Utah Quilt Block
Material: Copper and Steel
Size: 16 by 16 inches (40 by 40 cm)



This is part of my quilt block series, in this case a nine patch quilt. I am juxtaposing the ancient and the modern, the petroglyph with the pictogram. The copper panels are deeply etched, like a petroglyph carved into stone. The frame is beetle killed pine. The center panel represents the famous Supernova petroglyph from Chaco Canyon.

Utah is a place I love; it is also a place where petroglyphs, jeeps and oil development come together. This is about as close to a political piece as I do.
